An excellent sandy beach extends from south of Laytown to Mornington. Good safe bathing is available from every part of the strand. There is a large bee-hive shaped tumulus here, about eight metres high, which is supposed to be the burial mound of Laogh,one of Cuchulainn's charioteers. Sonairte, the National Ecology Centre, is located near Laytown.
