Mullaghroe is a nicely curved, secluded beach. The sand is soft, the water is clear and sheltered and there are nice views across Blacksod Bay. Not surprisingly, on a nice day in April, we were the only ones there and most definitely the only ones swimming
There are dunes for shelter and rocks at either end, so it’s a good spot to bring the kids
Mullaghroe has a small car park which leads across a small sandy stretch to the beach. It’s not wheelchair accessible but with effort you could lift a buggy across. In the car park there is one small, marble like picnic table which seem to be a feature of these parts. Nice and quite surreal
Blue Flag Beach .
Not sure about lifeguards – check with Mayo County Council
From Belmullet you take the R313 and watch out for a left turn signposted for Mullach Rua beach
