Benone Beach A1 PRINT


In stock


Benone Beach

I used acrylic on canvas to make the original painting which is A4 in size. The colour palette of blues is strong and vibrant, whilst pops of yellow and pink playfully catch the eye, and as always my signature purple makes an appearance depicting the different depths and movement within the water.

Benone Beach is available in two sizes –  Statement A2 image set inside a white border making it A1 overall. A large bold piece to invite conversation and musings.

Printed by Media Design Belfast on 230gsm matte coated A1 paper.  A6 image set inside a white border making it A5 overall. A smaller yet just as powerful piece to add colour to space.  Printed by Media Design Belfast on 180gsm matte coated A5 paper.  All prints are packaged carefully and shipped via Royal Mail recorded delivery to ensure they are received promptly and damage-free.


About the location

Benone has always been a very popular place to paint and encapture. The colours and strength in this painting of Benone beach with its reflections and sighting of Mussenden temple catch the eye from all angles.

Located in Limavady, County Derry on the north coast of Northern Ireland, Benone Beach stretches for an impressive seven miles along the Causeway Coast.

Stretching from Lough Foyle and Magilligan Point in the west to Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne in the east, there is plenty to see along this beautiful golden strand.

You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped onto the white sandy beaches of Australia during your time at Benone Beach for its white sandy shores backed by Umbra dune grasslands give it an appearance that is unrivalled throughout Ireland.

The views from Benone Beach are out of this world. To the east, you can see the incredible Mussenden Temple sat atop the cliff looking down at the beach below.

To the North-west, you can see Donegal and the incredible Inishowen Peninsula stretching out into the Atlantic Ocean. While looking across the water, you can see as far as Scotland on a clear day.

Regarded as one of the best beaches in Northern Ireland, Benone Beach has been a multiple-time recipient of the European Blue Flag Award, most recently receiving the award in 2020.

Here is a place where you can find recipes, information on physical wellbeing, travel and home ideas as well as life ramblings.

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “everyday”. Coffee cups, familiar landmarks, colour associations. All of these, I believe contribute to what is known as our “everyday”. Not only do I love drawing them, I think they are worth placing importance on.


This blog is an extension of my creativity.


I convey a realistic (the good, the bad, the funny, the sad) view into the life of a family woman, a home maker and a business woman on a journey of physical and mental wellness.
