Port Bán is a lovely beach, in a quiet location. It can be a bit hard to find, but it’s well worth the effort.
The beach here is sheltered at either end, so it won’t get too windy. The water is nice and clear and you can get into your depth gradually. Sections of the beach are a bit stony as you get into the water, so you might want to move around to get the right access point.
Access to the beach is via a grassy track which is definitely not wheelchair accessible. You will also be carrying your baby and buggy for a fair distance.
From Buncrana you go through the town on the R238. Then as you leave the town watch for a left turn signposted for Dunree Fort museum. Follow these signposts for about 10 kilometres. Just before the last turn left to the fort, you turn right and you will see a small area to park at the road side.
Before or after your swim the Fort is well worth a visit and the views from it are spectacular.
