Foynes Island Viewpoint
Foynes, Co. Limerick
Sunny days
Visit the small village of Foynes in County Limerick and take in fantastic views of the Shannon Estuary.

Located at the foot of the mature forest slopes of Ballynacragga and Knockpatrick, the major port village of Foynes is perfectly sheltered by its surroundings, with Foynes Island providing a boundary to water channels where the harbour is situated.

Immerse yourself in Foynes' rich maritime and aviation history, being the last port of call on the eastern Atlantic for flying boats between 1939 and 1945. Improve your knowledge of the sea and skies by checking out the Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum.
