Narin Blue Flag Beach

Narin Blue Flag Beach is located close to the town of Glenties on the western coast of Donegal. This fine sandy beach is over two kilometres long. Inishkeel island is located approximately 250 metres from the beach shore and can be reached on foot at low tide by crossing a tidal sand bank. The island together with Dunmore Head gives a good degree of shelter to the beach.

The renowned Narin & Portnoo Golf Links runs along much of the length of the beach. Lifeguards are normally on duty – from June until September. The area around Narin beach is of high conservation value because of the extensive area of relatively unspoilt coastal habitats and the range of plant and animal species that these habitats support.
