When you think of the beach, the last place you would ever think of is Ireland, but we do have some pretty good spots here.
So, no need to book a plane ticket, here’s a list of the best beaches all over our little island:
Brittas Bay, Co. Wicklow
This is a very popular beach during the summer, but with gorgeous sand and clear water it’s not surprising.
Dollymount Strand, Co. Dublin
A favourite among kite surfers because of its windy conditions, this beach has 5km of sand – perfect for a running or walking on.
Bettystown, Co. Meath
This gorgeous sandy beach is located in a pretty seaside village popular with tourists.
Ballymastocker Bay, Co. Donegal
Previously voted second most beautiful beach in the world, this is one beach you don’t want to miss out on.
