Surfing, Swimming and Bathing

There are two beaches in Muckross which are only a short distance away. Trá Lobhair beach is ideal for surfing. The other beach, Trá Bhán, has a car park and toilets and is ideal for swimming and bathing. We visit a third beach in Kilcar where we do the Kayaking which is called Port a'Chabhlaigh and is across from Teelin.
