Top Ten Fanore

1. Fanore lodge is 5 minutes from the beach which you can see from the house. Be brave –go for a swim! Get in for 3 minutes and be surprised at how quickly it warms up even in rain! If in doubt take the wetsuit out! The beach has delightfully clean, zingingly fresh water and a blue flag to prove it. There are great waves, life guards during the summer and no sharks or dangerous jellyfish either! Aloha Surf School operates from the beach and runs lessons during the warmer months.  Celebrate the post swim euphoria with a pint in O’Donohues pub!

“Every time we walk along a beach some ancient urge disturbs us so that we find ourselves shedding shoes and garments or scavenging among seaweed and whitened timbers like the homesick refugees of a long war.” – Loren Eiseley

Irish/Gaelic words:
Trá (rhymes with saw)- beach
Uisce (Ish-ke) - water
An fharraige ('n arraige) -the sea
Ag snámh (eg snawv) -swimming
