One of the highlights of this delightful little
seaside resort is its magnificent stretch of golden
sands, over 2 miles in length, known as Pollan
Bay Beach which is superb for surfing. There
is also a children’s playground at the beach.
Carrickabraghy Castle, built around '1500 AD'
was a stronghold of the Clan Ó’Dochartaigh, one
of its original occupiers being Phelemy Brasleigh
Ó’Dochartaigh. It is accessible by walking along
the beach. Ballyliffin is also home to one of
Ireland’s finest golf clubs with two outstanding,
but contrasting links courses.
