We walked along the beach under a grey sky during low tide. It was a pleasant walk with the sand dunes parallel to the sea. There were signs about dangerous currents so unfortunately no swimming.

This is a beautiful sandy beach with lots of seashells. A bit of a drive from the main road to get there, but well worth a visit!

Saw this signposted from the main road and decided to visit. Absolutely beautiful and I'm still not over how beautiful it is. It could easily rival Caribbean beaches. It also has nice and clean public toilets. A must visit

Visited Derrynane Beach while visiting Derrynane House and driving the Ring of Kerry. Loved this place way more than the drive! Relaxing, not crowded, clean... absolutely stunning views. Will definitely come again.

There is a life guard there. I would check with him as the beach looks lovely and there are perfect spots to swim but there are parts with rocks also for those that do not know the beach. When you come into the parking lot... More
