Sellerna Bay, Cleggan

August 2012

We aren't sure of the name of this beach, but it'd definitely in Sellerna Bay just outside Cleggan.

Sellerna is an attractive beach with clear blue-green water. It's a bit exposed with just a few rocks at one end for shelter. There is a gradual wade in and it's nice and sandy underfoot, one of the few sandy beaches in this particular part of Connemara.

There is a small car park with space for about 10 cars. Access to the beach is over a short but stony path. It isn't wheelchair accessible but if you had a tough jeep you could drive onto the sand.

Directions:

From Clifden take the R59 toward Westport. After about 5 kilometres take a left turn signposted for Cleggan. Drive straight through the village and after a kilometre you come to a small crossroads, where you turn right (there is a sign for the beach but it's hidden by a B and B sign).
