Ballyquintin

UK»Northern Ireland»Ballyquintin

Ballyquintin: It lies on a low, exposed, rocky coastline consisting of small promontories, bays, inlets and islands. Pockets of saltmarsh nestle amongst the mosaic of rocky outcrops and shingle towards the shore. Gorse or whin provides excellent cover and nesting opportunities for stonechats, whitethroats and linnets. The point is a good spot to see Irish hares, which feed on the grassland and along the shoreline. Migrant butterflies such as Red Admirals cross the Irish Sea and can occur abundantly here in some years.
