Located a few short miles north of the fishing village of Clogherhead is the expansive unspoilt beach of Port, a secluded sandy beach backed by low dunes. The sand dunes provide a habitat for a wide range of flora and fauna. The beach stretches for miles with breath taking views of the Mourne Mountains and Louth’s coastline. This Blue Flag Beach (awarded annually) is a popular place for locals and tourists alike; it’s a great spot for families and is ideal for picnics. The presence of a lifeguard during the summer months (check notice boards locally) makes this a popular beach for swimming and walking. Mind you it can get quite busy when the weather is hot.
“Walk the beach and wonder
with the tide that comes and goes,
enjoy the sunshine, salty air,
and the sand between your toes”
“Walk with the Tide” by Adrian Saich
