If you’re a morning person or you simply want to enjoy some peace and tranquility to start your day, head straight for Culleenamore strand. This long sandy strip is the perfect place to get away from the world, turn off your phone and relax to the sound of the ocean and the birds. You may come across a few locals walking their dogs or going for a run but more than likely you will be all alone.

Visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to watching the sunsets in Strandhill and one of the best locations is at Killaspugbrone church. High tide in and around the church is spectacular, with the golden sky lighting up the water surrounding the headland. Take a walk through the old graveyard and capture the sunset through some of the ancient Celtic crosses and look back at the village as another gorgeous day comes to an end.
