This is a lovely little fishing village just 6 miles from Ballina was the setting for the television series the Year of The French, in which the French invasion of Ireland took place, led by General Humbert. The force landed at Kilcummin another 6 miles north, and the drive down along this part of the coast is indeed well worthwhile, for its pure unspoilt beauty. Lacken strand is in this vicinity where one can be assured of peace and privacy.
