Old Head is one of the hidden treasures of Mayo. The complex is ideally suited to families seeking a brief respite from the daily humdrum of city life. It is a safe environment occupied in the main by other families.The beach is cove based, so is safe for all water activities like swimming, body boarding and the popular SUP.(stand up paddle boarding) On site there is a Coffee/Ice Cream Cafe along with a "Local". The site has a tennis court and children's swings. Very good fishing from the Pier.
