Killala Bay

OSI Discovery Series – Map No 24 – G 210 300

Directions :

Two viewing sites are in the town itself. One where several car parking spaces are available looking out across the inner bay; the other out by the quay.

A further viewing site is just out the road towards Ballycastle, where a new water treatment plant on the left affords space to park two cars and view an inner section of the bay (mudflats) on the right.
