Only decent cup of coffee we found in belmullet. Fab location. Great seating area. Friendly staff at the seabiscuit coffee spot. And the live music made our afternoon. Really felt like we were on holiday

Great fun

The views are stunning. Great to have the pool as it definitely feels a lot safer than the sea. Would recommend visiting. You can park right beside it and have your tea ready for the warm up!

Fantastic Free Activity for all the Family

Belmullet Tidal Pool In Shore Road is a fantastic facility to have in the Erris area. It’s free and can be a fun day out for the whole family.
It has a big pool which is 18m in length with a deep end of 2m and shallow end 1.2m & a toddler pool too.
There’s water in it all the time so you don’t have to rely on the tides. Lifeguards are on duty during July & August.
Portaloo toilets are there during the Summer months.

Just 10minutes walk from the town itself. The town has plenty of shops, a bakery and lovely restaurants & hotels.
Why not make the most of your trip by staying the night there’s plenty of accommodation to chose from The Talbot, The Western Strands, The Broadhaven Bay, Geraghtys farmhouse pods, Claggan Island self catering pods and plenty of B&Bs to choose from all over the peninsula or for something more unique book a stay on Inishkea Island with Inishkea cottage & boat hire.

If staying on the island is not an option there’s plenty of day trips with Belmullet boat charter on their vessel the Kea Josh.
If water sports are your thing why not look up Wavesweeper Adventures. David and the team will sort you out with kayaking, SUPs, snorkelling or surfing to name a few.
Declan from Tonn Nua surf school has plenty of options to choose from too.
There’s also options to kite surf with 360 kitesurfing.

Out of the water why not try a 5km walk at Erris Head Loop Walk it has stunning cliff views that will take your breath away & get you some amazing photos too.
Or try Cross Loop Walk which can be either a 5km or 10km walk over beach, road & grass. This walk intersects with the Erris Parkrun location.

If out for a drive or a long cycle why not take a spin to Blacksod Lighthouse to learn about its history, drive around falmore to see Deirbhle’s twist sculpture trail with stunning views of Achill Island & Blackrock Island. Follow the signs to Deirbhle’s Well & learn about the healing powers the water in the well is said to have.

On the way back to Belmullet take a turn to Corclough & follow the road back to Dun Na Mbo
Blow Hole for more fantastic views. If you drive on past the blow hole there’s a lovely viewing area of Eagle Island Lighthouse.

There really is so much to do and that’s only one side of Erris. For more information on other areas like Rinroe & Portacloy beach, Carrowteige loop walk, Doolough beach & Doohoma Head Follow Discover Erris on social media Facebook & Insta.

A visit to Erris will always be a memorable one, no matter what the weather is like there’s always something fun to do or sea or make the most of it 😁😁

Superb All Year Round Amenity
Mar 2021 • Friends
Fantastic open air tidal pool which means can swim at any time irrespective of tides- a short stroll from town centre along a fabulous promenade with expansive sea views towards Achill.
Very well maintained amenity .

Lovely to see it getting all year round use by those brave enough to take the plunge.

Excellent amenity and totally recommend heading that little bit further West- you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

OK so I woke up at the Broadhaven bay hotel, looked out the window and, Oh Boy it was lashing, so breakfast was the ordwr of the day - yummie. After breakie I chilled for a while and then off I went for a jog. Leaving the hotel the plan was to go to the top end of the town, turn left, jog to the end and then back. The rain was persisting and then I noticed that the Tide was in and the tidal pool was full. Did I go in??? You bet ya. It's fantastic and I wish I had one on my doorstep to avail of every day. Brilliant idea by the council - well done to all. I'll be back

Fantastic tidal pool in a fabulous scenic location
Aug 2020 • Family
It is no surprise that Belmullet tidal pool recently came 5th in a list of top tidal pools in Britain and Ireland... it has a stunning location, cleaned regularly by the tide, supervised by life guards , has parking overlooking Achill and Cleggan island and is a right of passage for all locals. More recently it has been discovered by adventurers ...bridal parties ... tourists...trying to start the perfect day in a refreshing way. But our favourite time is at sunset... heated a little(ok wee little) during the day it is the perfect location for a sunset swim... unforgettable ... so if your man enough add this to your bucket list you won’t forget it.
