Great Pollet Sea Arch Reviews & Ratings
Most impressive and beautiful place! It is a little bit tricky to find, you have to climb over a fence, but there is a small path to go there.
Don't even bother. You cannot find this place! So disappointing
Would have loved to seen but really not into arguing with local land owners. Gate and style blocked, unwelcome signs. Owner needs to grow up, you are a caretaker in your life, share and be proud.
THE GREAT POLLET SEA ARCH, STOOEY, FANAD, CO. DONEGAL, IRELAND. THE GREAT POLLET SEA ARCH IS A REAL HIDDEN GEM OF FANAD IN COUNTY DONEGAL. THE GREAT POLLET SEA ARCH IS THE IRISH EQUIVALENT OF THE FAMOUS DURDLE’S DOOR IN THE UK. IT IS A SPECTACULAR NATURAL SEA ARCH AND A FANTASTIC EXAMPLE OF MARINE EROSION. IT IS LOCATED ON A TOTALLY UNSPOILT STRETCH OF COASTLINE AND HAS A LOVELY PEBBLE BEACH ADJOINING IT. THIS BEAUTIFUL LANDMARK IS MUCH PHOTOGRAPHED AND PART OF THE IRELAND’S WILD ATLANTIC WAY.
First attempt to see the arch failed as we had no clue of where to go once we had climbed the gate. Read up on the review's and went back again slightly more prepared although still we wouldn't have found the well hidden arch but for the very good fortune of meeting a lovely local man who acted as our personal tour guide. The arch is difficult to find and the warning signs tresspassing etc, off putting. We were told to ignore these signs and climb the gate regardless, down the hill and across the front of the house, climb another gate and on down, over a style, your attention is taken my rock formation to the right of a small shingly cove but look left and there is the most amazing Pollet Great Arch, very well worth the effort of getting to. Many many thanks to the lovely gentleman (we were so busy chatting we forgot to ask his name) who showed us the way and helped us on the climb down and up
