Roundstone

This village has become famous through the work of many well known painters attracted by it's picturesque harbour and wonderful outlook across a deep inlet of the Atlantic to the everchanging peaks of the Twelve Bens. Its founder, Alexander Nimmo, choose his site well when he wrapped the layout of the village about the harbour basin and the fine stone piers he built there for the Fishery Board in 1822. Each Summer Roundstone celebrates its maritime history by hosting a regatta for the old worboats of the region, the Hookers, Pucain and Gleoiteoigi which have been lovingly revived and restored.
