Traught Beach, Kinvara
Near The Lady Gregory Hotel
Traught Beach is located in the sheltered Galway Bay just 25 minutes from us here at The Lady Gregory Hotel. This gently sloping sandy beach is an ideal spot for families. There is a lifeguard service during the summer months which means Traught beach is particularly safe for bathing.
Traught Beach is located in a rural agricultural landscape of small fields and hedgerows. The beach and car park face west to the open Atlantic although views to the city of Galway are possible on a clear day to the north.

This is a quiet rural beach which rarely gets busy, particularly now the campsite which backs onto the beach is closed. Traught beach lies within the Galway Bay Complex a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The variety and diversity of habitats present here are of great conservation value. It is an area particularly popular with birdwatchers who come here for the wildfowl. The beach also boasts a blue flag status making it a perfect location for swimming.
