Fanore Beach

Ballyvaughan, Galway

A popular bathing beach with extensive sand dune system and backed by limestone cliffs, crossed by the Caher River and exposed to the Atlantic swell. Close to the heart of the Burren area which can be fascinating for the botanist, zoologist and archeologist.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Galway) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
