Cleggan Village has four bars (Olivers, Joyces, Newmans, and The Pier Bar), one grocer and a sit-down restaurant, as well as a take-out. There is traditional music regularly in the summer, and an excellent restaurant in Oliver’s Bar.  There is also a children’s playground next to the community centre. Go horse trekking with the Cleggan Horse Riding Centre (Just outside Cleggan village) or take the bus from Cleggan to Galway City for the day!   There is an annual festival in Cleggan – Festival of the Sea, which takes place at the end of July/Early August every year

It is the mainland port for Inishbofin and the other islands off the coast. Boats for deep sea angling and island trips are available for hire at Cleggan.   No visit to Connemara is complete without a visit to Inishbofin Island, one of the most westerly Islands off the Irish coastline.   The unique Island of Inishbofin is located only 10 kilometres off the north Connemara coast, and is only a 30 minute crossing from Cleggan, . The Ferry Service is aboard the fast, Comfortable ferry “The Island Discovery”.  The Island Itself is a haven of beauty, boasting    magnificent scenery from cliff top walks to the sea on all sides to white sandy beaches and an abundance of rare flora and fauna.

In the sandhills of the northern shore are the ruins of Teampall Féichin (Temple Feichin) a small medieval church, preserving the memory of the monastery founded by Saint Féichin of Cong. On the western shore is Tobar FéichIn – Féichin’s Well.

The Cleggan & Claddaghduff are has been featured on numerous television programmes including BBC2′s ‘Coast’ series as an idyllic place to live or visit

Known for its large selection of lovely beaches, here is a list of beaches in the in the Cleggan/Claddaghduff Area:


Cleggan Beach is at the very head of Cleggan Bay. It is on the sea side of “Cleggan Causeway” – a narrow run of land over which the road runs, connecting Cleggan and Aughrus Peninsula to Cleggan Head


Sellerna is a large, sweeping beach very close to Cleggan, reached from a small road to the right as you leave Cleggan in the direction of the end of Peninsula – you’ll find it, signposted “Tra” (meaning “Beach” or “Strand” in Irish), just by the large white “Cleggan” sign marking the edge of the village.  It’s a lovely, safe, sandy beach, a great favourite with families.   Lovely to take a walk in the evening for a sunset stroll.


From Cleggan Village, proceed from Cleggan towards the end of the peninsula and find the right turn to Rossadilisk about 2km from Cleggan. From Claddaghduff, take the left turn 50m from Sweeney’s, over the hill, turn right at the T-Junction, and the left turn to Rossadilisk is only a couple of hundred metres along the road in a Cleggan-wards direction. As you proceed down the narrow road to Rossadilisk, take the first turn to the right along an un-tarred road, and this will bring you to the very lovely Tra Bhride, on Cleggan Bay. It’s a smaller beach than Sellerna, but it really is beautiful, as you will see from the photo above. Anglers sometimes fish from the rocks at each end of the beach.


Rossadilisk Strand proper is a broad, curved length of beach, stretching right around Rossadilisk Point, protected by reefs of off lying rocks. Around the point is Rossadilisk Harbour, with its pier and, except in winter, small fishing vessels including traditional currachs, moored there. When the tide is high, there is a small stretch of sand but, when the tide is out, the sea recedes quite a long way across the flat beach.

The sea is often warm here, especially at the top of a flood tide, the sea warm from flowing in over the sun-warmed sand. It’s great for swimming – and extremely safe – as well as for taking a relaxed stroll of a summer evening. It’s a romantic-feeling place


The “Anchor” Beach, at Aughrus beg on the sea side of Aughrus Lake is a fine place whether on a windy day, as shown to the right, or on a fine calm day – the banner photo at the head of each of the pages on this website is of the Anchor beach. In fact there is a series of small interconnected beaches there, all sandy and lovely, and all great for families to spend the day, swimming, playing or just sun-bathing.


Tra Mor (the Big Beach) is also on the sea side of Aughrus Lake. Near the small road leading to the area known locally as the Gannoughs, and to Aughrus Point itself, there is a line of quite newly built houses; and beside them, a rough track which leads you to a grassy area. Proceeding to the right along the grass brings you to Tra Mor.

Again, this is a grand beach for families – a bit off the beaten track so that not that many people other than locals and those who read these pages know about it. It’s sandy, with rocky outcrops – great for swimming and sunbathing, and the best beach we can think of for that endlessly enjoyable task of gazing into rock pools with their great diversity of shore life. Perfect activity for children from eight to eighty!


Is a tidal island situated near Claddaghduff on the western edge of Connemara. From the mainland the island is inconspicuous and almost hidden. It is possible to drive or walk across a large sandy strand to the island by following the arrowed signs. At high tide, the water is deep enough to cover a car. It’s great for walking, swimming, sailing, surfboarding, kite surfing, flying kites, practising your car-driving skills at low tide…just about everything!


Fountain Hill, around the Peninsula in the direction of Streamstown Bay, but before the road turns left along Streamstown, is reached by taking one of the right turns from the road. A very beautiful beach, quite steeply sloping but generally safe otherwise, the sand is silver rather than gold, and a perfect spot for picnicking.
