Ireland’s best beaches


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.
