Trá an Dóilín, is located near the village of Carraroe. The beach is noted for its very fine "coral". Contrary to the English name, Coral Strand, the beach is actually made of coralline algae known as maerl. This type of beach (biogenic gravel) is rare and of great conservation importance. There are public changing rooms and toliet facilities available at the beach.

From Galway City, head west on the R336, past An Spidéil and on towards Casla. Turn left at Casla on the R343 towards An Ceathrú Rua (Carraroe). Go straight through the village and follow the sign for Trá (beach) to get through Trá and Dóilin.

The beach is lifeguard patrolled during the bathing season. Lifeguard times can be viewed by clicking on the tab above or by checking out the information notice board at the beach.
