Kilmore Quay & Saltee Islands

Kilmore Quay & Saltee Islands

Steeped in a maritime history, the fishing port, with quaint thatched cottages, a children’s playground and playful seals in the harbour, is a hive of activity.  Forlorn Point has some of the most ancient rock in Europe.  A memorial garden dedicated to those lost at sea lies beside Ballyteigue Burrow’s 9km of sand dunes abundant with flora and fauna.  Just offshore, the unspoiled Saltee Islands are a haven for sea-birds, surrounded by abundant marine life.
