Gurteen Bay is a pretty natural cove located near Roundstone, a stone’s throw from Connemara in Ireland. Magnificent, one appreciates its fine sandy beach, as well as its proximity to a second bay: Dogs Bay. To do to enjoy the sea!
Need to rest, in a quiet place, while enjoying the rather nice seaside scenery? The Gurteen Bay is ideal to take a break, enjoy the view, and make a few sand pies! Situated south of the village of Roundstone, it is easy to get to and is a favourite spot for families, surfers and other beach joggers.
Its turquoise water is transparent. Convincing enough to want to take a dip in it, although those who are cold can quickly become discouraged (swimming is best in the summer, otherwise a wetsuit is required).
It is possible to stroll along the beach of Gurteen and then access its neighbouring bay: Dogs Bay, just as magnificent! Don’t miss it!
