Escape to Ireland’s best beaches

Looking for a beautiful beach to visit in Ireland isn’t a difficult task, especially if you are in the west of the country. But finding the ‘best beach’ is more about finding one that suits your plans for the day. Big wave surfer? Try Bundoran Beach in County Donegal on the north-western tip of Ireland. It’s known by the locals as ‘Ireland’s surf capital’ and its reliable reef and beach breaks bring adrenaline seeking surfers back time and time again. There are no less than four surf schools here to help you brush up on your skills or teach you the basics, including Donegal Adventure Centre, Ireland’s largest surf school.

But maybe you are more the kind of person who would rather view the waves from the beach. Inch Strand in County Kerry provides the kind of epic shoreline vistas that encourage strolling, sitting and generally marvelling at nature’s beauty.

Discover the beautiful west coast of Ireland

If you’re a fan of golden valleys, nice people, and majestic nature and really would like to have time to see everything, Ireland is the place to go. It is not that huge so a week of car travelling should do you good.
