Spanish Point Beach

Spanish Point lies to the west of Milltown Malbay on the road from Quilty to Lahinch. It is a sandy beach, the long spine of rocks which stick out into the sea and the rocky shoreline at the northern end of the strand are very interesting places to observe a variety of plants and animals. 

Please bring your litter home at the end of your visit to Spanish Point.  

Under the Litter Pollution Acts 1997-2003, dog-owners are required to clean up after their animals if it fouls in a public place such as public roads, footpaths, parks and beaches. Failure to do so can result in an on-the-spot fine of €150.

Beach bye-laws are in place with horse riding and dogs prohibited between 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. during the summer season.

Motorised watercraft, surfing and the use of canoes and kayaks is prohibited in close proximity to swimmers.
