Glasheen is small, secluded and sheltered by rocks at either end. Out to sea you are looking across the mouth of the Shannon River to the Kingdom of Kerry.
On a warm sunny day in June we were the only ones there, a common feature of many, off the beaten track beaches in Ireland.
Glasheen has a decent sized car park, a couple of stone picnic tables and steps which lead you down to the beach.
Buggy accessible, but not wheelchairs.
From the town of Kilkee take the R487 signposted for Loop Head. Watch out for and take a left turn sign-posted Doonaha. When you come to a crossroads you go straight through (not signposted when we were there) which leads you to Glasheen beach.
