Asdee’s Hidden Gems

Littor Strand

Littor Strand is a lovely, family-friendly, Green Flag beach, which stretches for miles along the Estuary into the adjoining Beale Beach.

Home to Bottlenose Dolphins and migrant waders, such as the Brent Geese seen below, the beach is an ideal place to unwind.

The beach plays host to numerous resident species of birdlife, including Oystercatchers, Curlews, Dunlins, and various types of Seagull.Sunset on Littor Strand.

Given the beach is located close to the Atlantic coast, we are treated to some spectacular, unspoiled sunsets during the year.

Also, with the vast, sandy beach at low tide, it is an ideal location for dogs to enjoy their own little bit of heaven on earth.

The Shannon Way Trail

The Shannon Way Walking Trail gives a picturesque view of the Shannon Estuary. Stretching from Cnoc an Óir to Tarbert, the trail gives stunning views of North Kerry, Clare, Limerick, and even as far as Galway on a clear day.

The Asdee River

The river rises in two separate parts of the hill overlooking the village, before meeting and meandering down stream through the village and into the Shannon Estuary.
