Far from the pressures of city life, Derryinver is a place to relax and enjoy the fresh sea air, the peace, the tranquillity. Derryinver can be found on the serene and tranquil Renvyle Peninsula on the Wild Atlantic way, a hauntingly beautiful coastline etched out by the ebb and flow of countless tides. It contains an archaeological site of a Six Pillar Stone Alignment which would have been built to line up with the Winter Solstice. Amidst this place you will find Ballinakill Harbour one of the most beautiful, clean, natural and well-protected harbours in the world.

Flora & Fauna

Ballinakill Harbour is home to a large variety of sea birds – wild duck, cormorants, herons, gulls, terns, oystercatchers, guillemots and Curlews and is also home to a small colony of grey seals. Porpoises and dolphins are also frequent visitors.

The region is also rich in marine history and folklore, with many swashbuckling, romantic tales to tell..
