Rossbeigh was absolutely trashed by the storms of winter 2013/14. This image depicts the coastline which has been shifted westwards by a good few metres. The car park was overrun with large stones and boulders!

Site Details

The spit at Rossbeigh is the most westerly on the south side of Castlemaine Harbour, acting as a natural breakwater which allows the estuary to exist. The spit, some six kilometres long, is characterized by a sandy beach and dune system. Waders and gulls may be found on the beach, with large numbers of Common Scoter wintering just offshore — it was here that the first Stejneger's Scoter for Ireland was found in March 2011, and Surf Scoters have also been seen.
