There are plenty of activities to suit all the family. Craft shops, walking trails, cycling trails, an award-winning playground, tennis courts and kilometres of golden sandy beaches. An anglers paradise, this area has excellent shore and boat angling available.

Being so close to the sea, there is no shortage of wonderful seafood available in the local award-winning bars, restaurants and coffee shops. Accommodation is available at CoastKilmoreQuay hotel, a number of Bed & Breakfasts, self-catering and camping options in the area.
