It takes almost half an hour to drive from Dingle to the beach as the road is a single lane one. But it hugs the ocean for the final 4km or so and it’s a glorious drive on a sunny day. The vistas were gorgeous...More

Next time I will take myself a picnic lunch and stay for HOURS. You feel safe and nestled in a pristine cove with cliffs all around.

Wonderful sheltered beach at the foot of the cliffs. Great for surfers and safe for kids. Amazing views across to the Blasket Islands. No wonder the David Lean chose it as location for his film Ryan's Daugter

The hike was an easy 15 minute walk. The only difficult part was figuring out which way to get over the fence without getting caught on your clothes. Walk slow to give the sheep a chance to get off the path.
