Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to drive to the Beach?

    No, it is just a few minutes walk to the nice little sandy beach at Aughris  (in front of Beach Bar).  Some people like to drive the 5kms to the larger stretch of sand at Dunmoran Strand, others walk between the two beaches.

  • Will the house be warm when we arrive in Winter?
    Yes we take pride in providing a warm welcome, with the heating on and the open fire or stove lit once we know your expected arrival time. It’s what our winter guests like most, then when they arrive the biggest dilemma is whether to head out again to the pub or not..

    Do we have to arrive at a set time?

    No, there is a keysafe at the door, and we will email or text you with the code so that you can arrive at any time. We like an estimated time of arrival though so that we can have heating / stove set for you.


      Are towels provided
      Regrettably from 1 Oct 2022 we no longer provide towels due to the huge increase in our laundry costs.  Towels can be booked at €10 per person per stay payable locally.

  • Are pets allowed?

    Yes pets are welcome. There are tiles / hardwood floors though out so we don’t mind dogs once strictly not in bedrooms. Dogs themselves love the space, the garden and the walks at the beach.

  • Is the Beach Bar near enough to walk to it?

    Absolutely, it really is just 10 minutes.  just long enough to give you an appetite! Another option is to drive around to the pub and leave the car if you have a few too many!   If planning a meal at the pub in high season you are advised to book a table in advance as it can be very busy – contact details at house.

Is the Restaurant open daily?

Yes in high season.  In winter it may only be open at weekends. Best to check with the Beach Bar website.   Last orders 8pm.

  • Is there a cafe nearby?

    Its just 10kms to Easkey , home of the award winning grocery shop “Pudding Row”.  14kms to Ballisodare (Tempo cafe) 20kms to Strandhill (Shells cafe) Also check out Loveen’s Tasty Treats, popular stall at Aughris Head

  • Does the Beach Bar do Take-Out Meals?
