Bishop's Quarter, Ballyvaughan
Near Lady Gregory Hotel
Bishop’s Quarter is located just 2 kms north east of Ballyvaughan in the north of County Clare, just 32 minutes from us here at Lady Gregory Hotel, Leisure Club & Beauty Rooms. The beach is located a few miles past Ballyvaughan village on the R447 road from Ballyvaughan to Fanore and is accessed by a narrow byroad which is signposted.
Bishops Quarter is a beach of the stony variety and there isn’t a whole lot of sand about. Access into the water can also be a bit stony and awkward underfoot. However, the water here is lovely and clear and you will swim surrounded by magnificent views of the Burren. So it well worth a bit of discomfort. Bishops Quarter also has ample car parking. Accessible for buggies with an effort. Not wheelchair accessible. This beach is located on the R477 a couple of kilometres beyond the town of Ballyvaughan as you head toward Kinvara. Watch out for a left turn with a signpost for the beach.
