The coast road from Castlegregory to Brandon runs alongside a long stretch of beach with at least 3 access points – Stradbally, Kilcummin and Fermoyle. We chose Fermoyle which is a wide expanse of open beach with little or no shelter.
When we were there the tide was out and there was lots of room for walking and playing. Bring your windbreak if you are planning to stay for a while. There was a gradual wade in and it was nice and sandy underfoot. The water was a bit wavy, but nice for swimming.
This is a good place for families to come on a sunny day. The car park has space for about 15 cars and you can also drive onto the beach if your car is up to it.
From Tralee take the N86 toward Dingle and then branch off onto the R560 toward Castlegregory. You bypass Castlegregory and after you go through Stradbally and Kilcummin you then take a right turn onto the R550 toward Cloghane and Brandon Point. Shortly after this turn you will come to a right turn signposted for the beach.
