View of Ballybunion from a clifftop. A ruined castle silhouetted against sea and sky. Several large thatched buildings by the shore on the right, others higher up on the left, including one with three storeys. Numerous people walking on the beach or in the surf. In the foreground, sheep and three young men, one apparently climbing the face of the cliff. Further along the path, a woman and child, and three other figures, one with stick and arms upraised.
