Trá Mór may not be as spectacular as some of the beaches out in the wilds of Connemera, but it is an attractive, well looked after beach with decent facilities.
This is a nice stretch of sand which is well sheltered. The water is clear and gets deep gradually. As you swim you have great views across to the Burren in Clare
Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months.
Trá Mór has good car parking and toilets. The beach is buggy and wheelchair accessible – well done Galway County Council.
Blue Flag beach .
From Galway you take the R336 coast road. The beach is a few kilometres beyond Spiddal and is signposted left (with a very small signpost). Before you come to Trà Mor there is also a signpost for Trà Sailin which is a much smaller beach, but may suit those who like it quiet.
