Renowned for it's magnificent expanse of sandy beach
A traditional seaside getaway that will take you back to days gone by - a perfect, quiet, pretty village with the most beautiful sandy beach that makes for a superb spot to spend a sunny day, paddling, playing tennis and there is a playpark too for the little ones.
The village itself dates back to the early 17th Century when the Savage family built Kirkistown Castle. The Castle is undergoing some renovation work and opens periodicly.
Cloughey once had an important RNLI lifeboat station which was established in 1884 and remained in service until 1965 saving many lives during its time of operation.
