Mullagh, West Clare


The large West Clare village of Mullagh lies in an area characterised by coastal farmland and dunes.

The village is flanked to the northeast by Mount Callan and is a short distance from the village of Quilty and the town of Miltown Malbay.

The two beaches at Seafield, which are situated a short drive from Mullagh, offer views towards Doonbeg and the mountains of Kerry to the south and the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher to the north, and provide plenty of opportunity for swimming, walking, seasonal bird watching and painting.  The nearby Spanish Point Beach is a discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way and is one of nine International Blue Flag beaches in Clare. The lengthy sandy beach is a popular bathing and surfing area, while lifeguards are on duty throughout the summer months. 

The annual Mullagh Horse & Cattle Show takes place each August and features a range of family fun activities.

The local Gaelic Football team is Kilmurry Ibrickane GAA, playing in Quilty, but with their training complex in Mullagh. The club is a hive of activity, particularly during the summer months, and always affords a warm welcome to visitors looking to enjoy the spectacle of Gaelic Football.

The village features a comprehensive range of services including a primary school, public house, community sports facility, church, filling station, garden centre, Montessori, accommodation at Clare Country Cottages, and other retail services.

Irish television commentator and presenter Marty Morrissey and singer-songwriter P.J. Murrihy are from Mullagh.
