Built in the late 1840s, the harbour is one of the busiest fishing ports in the country and the first Irish landfall for many yachts visiting from abroad. It is also the embarkation point for sea angling trips and excursions around the Saltee Islands.  The vista of thatched cottages on the main street is one of the first things to strike visitors. The village boasts one of the most complete collections of 18th and 19th century vernacular architecture in the country. Around the harbour area is a number of shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a children’s playground and scenic promenade to the Memorial Garden and Grounds and on to Ballyteige Burrow.
