Waterville is a very remote part of Ireland and takes a long time to get there from Tipperary or Cork. Very wild landscape. The journey there has majestic and breathtaking scenery.

Waterville beach was good for a morning stroll but it was quite rocky. The beach was a good length. Close to the main road.

A beautiful rugged shore, surrounded by a quaint town. We stopped here for a break from our drive and really wished that we could have stayed longer.

THis is a great spot to stop along the Ring of Kerry. There is a parking lot. Public restroom. Many restaurants along this road. Beware there are many many tour buses that stop here as well. Especially around lunch time.

Great place to relax and take in the scenery. Also people fishing near by. Watching the sun go down was amazing.

Stones then some sand. Quiet seafront. Picnic benches and grassy area. Toilets on the front. Safe place to stop with children. Cafes and bars on the road nearby.
