Trà Gheall, Inisbofin Island

June 2010

Trà Gheall is out of the way, secluded and attractive. This is a small beach set below the cliff path and surrounded by a small cliff face.

We wondered about including this beach as there are strong currents, but there is no Council warning sign and people might presume its ok. So before you swim here be warned that you need to be very careful and should stay very close to shore. You can be out of your depth in a few strokes

While the beach is exposed there is shelter at the back beneath the cliff face. The sand here is soft and clean.

Access to the beach is down a steep, grassy path and is not accessible for buggies or wheelchairs.

Turn left at the ferry pier and follow the road until it runs out and becomes a grassy track. You then cross two stiles and after the second one you will see the beach on your left and the track down to it. Descend carefully and slowly.
