Dog's Bay Beach

Reviewed By victoriafoody - Victoria, Canada

We discovered this beach at the end of our day driving the Wild Atlantic way. In hindsight, we should have driven straight here and just hanged out at the beach. We arrived here without any beach gear (swim suits, towels etc), but it didn't matter. We were just happy to walk or sit on the gorgeous white sandy beach, play in the crystal clear water and admire the beauty of the landscape. We had only allowed ourselves an hour here, next time we'll make sure that we can spend most of the day to relax at the beach.

Reviewed By AoifeD979 - Trim, Ireland

Loved this beach. It’s hard not to. We had sun for a few hours and then had light rain and we still stayed on the beach playing ball. It was just gorgeous

Doughmore Bay

Reviewed By Burkhard042 - Siegen, Germany

Doughmore Bay is a place hard to find elsewhere in Ireland. Kilometers of sand, each day different and loved by pet holders and their dogs, surfers, beach walkers and sometimes even golfers. A plate gives evidence of a tragedy which happened 1941, when a British Sunderland flying boat had to make a forced landing on the sea You will meet sea gulls, gannets and, if you are lucky, two Border Collies who go for a stroll every morning. When you want to walk the whole bay look for low tide.

This is a stunningly beautiful bay, with white coral sand and turquoise sea. Well worth a stop to take it all in.

Who know I would tan in Ireland!! Fun, quiet, clean beaches. Perfect for families. No lifeguards, so be aware. For Americans, know that the water is lovely, but very cold!

Fanore Beach

Reviewed By jeanl108

This is a beautiful and very popular beach. On a sunny day, the water is warm and lovely to swim in. There are plenty of rock pools for children to play in. There is a surfing school available with equipment for hire at a reasonable cost.
