Hello, I am a migrant from the Connemara forums.
I am considering letting a house for a week in late August to stay with my children ages 13, 11 and 8. I spent a lot of time sifting through cottages in Connemara and finally realized I was looking for something completely different.
I am considering letting a cottage near Lauragh and am wondering if there are any places on the penninsula where my children could swim. I noticed there are no official beaches on Beara as there are on the ring of Kerry. I have read it is possible to swim in Glanmere Lake and also a blue pool near Glengarriff.
I have read about the penninsula and it sounds quite beautiful and I think it would make an excellent base for our stay, but I am not sure. The other places I am considering are Valentia Island and near Glenbeigh, both of which also have cottages available.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you!
