Irish Beach was originally a sheep ranch purchased in the early 1960s by Bill Moores, Sr., a lumberman from Ukiah. His ambition was to establish a second home development on the coast, reminiscent of his early life enjoyment of the Oregon Coast at Gearheart and Cannon Beach.
Over the years, Irish Beach has become not only a second home development, but also the permanent residence for many families leaving the pressured environments of more urban areas. It is now a community of approximately 160 homes located 45 minutes south of Mendocino Village and three hours north of the Golden Gate bridge.
