Cloghy Rocks is a wonderful location as a number of seals are often spotted here on this group of rocks. Additionally, there are a lot of different habitats available here which makes this area home to a number of small shellfish and worms which provide a rich feeding ground for shore birds.

The dense growth of brown seaweeds occur with clearly defined zones of different species running down the shore levels, from channelled wrack at the top to kelp at the lowest part of the shore.

There is also a car park; information point and viewing area for those visitors who would like to explore more of what this breath-taking area has to offer.
