Ballyteige Burrow is one of the most impressive shingle-based dune systems in Ireland. The fixed dunes support several declining plant communities, rare species of lichen and flowering plants and scarce insects that benefit from the southerly location, the abundance of sand, and the highest mean daily duration of bright sunshine recorded in Ireland.
