Welcome to Loughshinny

Drumanagh Martello Tower
Near Loughshinny village lies the Drumanagh Martello Tower. Martello towers are defensive forts that were built across the British Empire during the 19th century, from the time of the French Revolutionary Wars onwards. Most were coastal forts. The British built about fifty Martello towers around the Irish coastline, especially along the east coast.
The beach at Loughshinny, which is situated between Rush and Skerries, is a popular destination with both locals and visitors.
