Birdwatching at the Bridges of Ross
- View as map
Located on the north side of the Loop Head Peninsula, the Bridges of Ross is an internationally renowned seabird-watching site.
The Bridges of Ross were formerly a trio of sea-arches but they have been worn away over the years by the fierce Atlantic, leaving one remarkable ‘bridge’ still to be seen.
This low-lying area has the ideal orientation that marks it out as an internationally renowned seabird-watching site. In the late summer and early autumn sea birds such as shearwaters, skuas and petrels pass by close to shore, sometimes overhead, as they follow Ireland’s western shore on their southern migration.
