Loughshinny is a small, attractive family beach nestling between a harbour at one end and cliffs at the other.
This looks like an old fishing village and there is a small car park just before the harbour.
While the beach is smallish it is well protected. The water is clear and shallow, so it’s a good place for kids to splash around. A nice place for families to visit on a good summers day.
The beach itself is accessible from the car park.
Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months.
From Dublin take the M1 Belfast road. Leave this at exit 4 where you take the R132 for Skerries. Follow the Skerries signposts all the way and before the town watch out for a right turn signposted Loughshinney. Follow the signposts which will take you to the car park.
