Took a pre-lunch stroll around the harbour in the brilliant sunshine - great feel to the place and hope to go back again.

This is a pretty little village, quaint and welcoming. Tourist from overseas who love the traditional Irish feel of a place, will find it here. The beach is further down from the main street and offers a lovely stretch of sand to walk.
