Bertraghboy Bay, also known as Birterbury Bay, is an inlet bight off the Big Sound on the northern approaches to Galway Bay situated about midway between Golam Head and Slyne Head, immediately to the east of Roundstone Bay and approximately 36 miles to the west of Galway itself, on the west coast of Ireland. The bay affords many secure anchorages which are used as a quieter location than its near neighbour Roundstone Bay, and an opportunity for a dinghy landing at the small pier at Pats Point, in a scenic secluded and peaceful setting with mountain views.

Once into the bay it affords good shelter from all quarters in all reasonable winds and seas depending on the choice of anchorage, although the access requires attentive navigation as there are a number of dangers around the entrance.
Please note

There are several fish farm cages in the approaches making a daytime approach preferable.
