Visited for three days with our two year old, the beaches are in fantastic condition but are not too over crowded which was nice for the little one. The views are spectacular, but that is standard for West Cork.

Spent an afternoon here during the June Bank Holiday. The weather was absolutely amazing and the beach on either side is breathtaking. Safe for the kids with plenty of rockpools to keep them occupied.

Great sandy beach - big enough for everyone! Loved swimming in the sea here, even if it is a bit chilly in May.

Lucky to visit at the end of May when the weather was amazing. Fantastic tidal beach which obviously benefits from Gulf Stream. Great for long walks. Surf school available.

Fun beach to walk on and people watch. Reminiscent of Cape Cod. There is a small, sheltered cove right in front of the hotel with clear, calm water. Lovely.

Great spot, lovely sandy beach perfect for playing games, flying kites or building sandcastles. A must if you're in the area.

Great open beach with nice sand dunes to wander around. You can either walk for miles or just a few hundred yards and get the same experience from the place. A photogenic spot.

Listened to the waves over a couple of pints! Could spend all day there! Took in as much scenery as I could. I spent my last day in Ireland there!

Couldn’t beat or fault this beach. Absolutely beautiful. Defo worth a visit if in the area. Only 5 mum drive from clonakilty which has everything you need and much more.

We ate in the Bar in Inchydoney and we had the Fish & Chips which was highly recommended but it was very disappointing and the Fish was delivered in Goujons which I hate as I really believe this is a cheap way of delivering proper...More
