Quilty is a picturesque, coastal village in the parish of Kilmurry Ibrickane.

It is beautifully situated, looking out from Quilty, you will have the Aran Islands on one side, the Cliffs of Moher on the other and Connemara behind you.

Lobster, salmon, bass, herring and mackerel are landed at Quilty, formerly known for its curing industry. 

Across the bay from Quilty is Mutton Island, where St. Senan founded a church in the early 6th century.

A signal tower, built in the early 19th century, was designed to give warning of invasion during the Napoleonic period but was also used by the coastguard to prevent smuggling.

In the early 20th century, Mutton Island was used as a prison.

Tromoroe Castle lies about 3 km from the village.
