Drishane Island from Tragumna's beach

Tragumna (Irish: Tráigh Omna, meaning "strand of the oak (trunk)")[1] is a small hamlet and beach located in the civil parish of Castlehaven about 5 km from the town of Skibbereen in County Cork, Ireland.

The small beach at Tragumna overlooks a tiny island, Drishane Island, which is about 100 metres offshore. The beach was awarded a Blue Flag for the years 2019 and 2020.[2]

A small lake (Lough Abisdeally) is nearby and is visited by birdwatchers.[citation needed] 3 km away is Lough Hyne which is a designated Marine Nature Reserve.
