We aren’t sure of the name of this beach, but it’d definitely in Sellerna Bay just outside Cleggan.

Sellerna is an attractive beach with clear blue-green water. It’s a bit exposed with just a few rocks at one end for shelter. There is a gradual wade in and it’s nice and sandy underfoot, one of the few sandy beaches in this particular part of Connemara.

There is a small car park with space for about 10 cars. Access to the beach is over a short but stony path. It isn’t wheelchair accessible but if you had a tough jeep you could drive onto the sand.


From Clifden take the R59 toward Westport. After about 5 kilometres take a left turn signposted for Cleggan. Drive straight through the village and after a kilometre you come to a small crossroads, where you turn right (there is a sign for the beach but it’s hidden by a B and B sign).
