- Silverstrand Beach: Silverstrand Beach is in walking distance of our B&B, and is ideal to stroll along and soak up the beauty and magic of your tranquil surroundings. It is a safe, sandy beach that is flanked on one side by cliffs, and the other by rocks. The 0.25km beach faces directly into Galway Bay, which provides breathtaking views as you meander along. During the summer months, it is life-guarded daily, making it the perfect family-friendly beach.
