Travelled to the beach in the rain and bad weather. Swam in the sea it was truly amazing even though it was raining and foggy - think actually it was even better as there was not many people there. A little piece of heaven.

Situated on the ring of Kerry this is a lovely scenic beach to visit. With nice walks and big sand dunes it's a lovely quiet peaceful place. Would definitely return again!
