Killala Bay situated 15 minutes north of Ballina in County Mayo. Its a very small, peaceful and beautiful spot for a stop off an a quick wander.
We were on our way to Eniscrone beach for the day, but our young son had fallen asleep in the car so we decided to visit Killala to kill some time.
Killala Bay is a estuary for the River Moy and lies a perfect spot for fishing trips.
As you can see from the two pictures below its a beautiful and big bay.
Killala Bay centre which is very small is situated up a little hill and at the top of this hill is the tall round tower. Which many many years ago was used as a watch tower. And is now a good little attraction for this village.
Here below is a little bit of information from the tower itself
The small Killala Bay center is a small but very quaint little village with real old style shops like this little butchers below. Traditional newsagents and a pubs and restaurant also line this lovely street.
It had a great feel as everyone who we came across was so friendly and went out there way to say hello.
Some Final Information
After a little wander around we headed back to the car down at the bay and took in the final views of this stunning little town.
We then even took a few minutes to read a bit about the bay and the area from these signs below.
Thanks for stopping by just a small post today but we felt this lovely little town deserved a little write up
