Shellinghill Beach

Shellinghill Beach

Shellinghill/Templetown Beach, located in Co. Louth

Shellinghill/Templetown called after the crusading "Knights Templars" fronts one of Louth's most popular but as yet unspoilt stretch of coastline. Protected on each side by a low level rock promontory, its smooth safe sands extends its friendly playground to curious underwater marine life and to numerous local and day trippers from as far away as Armagh & Cavan.

Its arc shaped embankments with its prolific natural vegetation offers cover to the secretive, comfort and protection to the lazy, and a playground to children. The sand and shingle southwards facing beach is manned by lifeguards during the bathing season.
