Walking the Flaggy Shore
Belated Happy New Year! If this is the first time you are visiting my blog, I have started to document cycles and walks in and around the Burren Lowlands. so far I have documented Gort’s mini Greenway, Gort’s Golden Mile, Mary’s
Looking for a walk to clear your head, walk the 10 000 steps you had committed to in your new years resolution? Check out the below walk or cycle at the Flaggy Shore in Co. Clare
We are just back from a walk at the very popular Flaggy Shore in Co. Clare., bordering Co. Galway. To get to the Flaggy Shore, you’ll drive on the well established Wild Atlantic Way, passing through picturesque Kinvara.
When we were driving through Kinvara there were road resurfacing works going on. It just made me realize the roads are pretty narrow, especially with the tour buses. Drive carefully( and on the left!!)
The Flaggy Shore is one side of a small peninsula that stretches from the village of New Quay to Finvarra
It’s about an hour’s drive from Galway city, 90 minutes from Shannon airport and a 4 hour’s drive from Dublin. All I can say, it’s worth it!
It has been a while since we were here last, so it was great to see the new signs for the Wild Atlantic Way.
We definitely weren’t alone there either, the car park was packed with cars, and plenty of people walking, kids on bikes, roller skates, it reminded me of walking the promenade in Salthill, only difference was that we were in Co. Clare! I am guessing it’s very busy in the summer months! ( We were there early January!)
As we walked we a saw a sign for Linnalla Ice cream parlour. Unfortunately, we turned back just a little too
We walked for about 2,5
Can’t wait to go again, with the bikes, explore the Martello tower and of course sample the Linnala Icecream.
