Carrickabraghy is a squarish townland, with its north and west sides touching the sea forming a rocky headland. A quarter of the land is arable and the rest is rough sandhill grazing. There is a small piece of strand with many rocky reefs, stacks and cliffs. Glashedy Island is situated just off Carrickabraghy. There are no villages or parts. The ruins of Carrickabraghy castle and tower are to be found here.
