Bellatrix Bed and Breakfast for women is located right beside Dunboy forest and in a fifteen minute walk you will find yourself at this magnificent little cove (below). There is a beautiful loop walk, Bullig Bay Loop which is 6km long and starts right at Bellatrix door or you can just enjoy a gentle stroll to the cove. We regularly enjoy BBQ’s at this cove and the women who stay at Bellatrix love this authentic outdoor experience on The Wild Atlantic Way.
“Rita and Lainey, how can I begin to thank you for these ten days at Bellatrix… I will bring home many lovely memories, especially the drum circle and satsang and the walks with Rita through the hills. Thank you for creating such a beautiful space here.”
