White Strand, Killard, Doonbeg
How many beaches in Ireland are called White Strand ? Who knows, but here’s another one.
This is a nice, small and secluded beach, sheltered by rocks at either end. A good feature is steps down to the sand from a couple of locations. This White Strand looks across the bay to its big brother beach at Doughmore Bay called, you’ve guessed it, White Strand.
Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months. Blue Flag beach
The beach is buggy accessible, but not wheelchairs.
Killard has a good size car park. Watch out for the memorial to Pat McDonnell, 1912 Olympic shotput champion, who was born near the beach in 1878.
Access is off the N67 between Kilkee and Doonbeg. About 5km from Kilkee you take a left turn at the signpost for The White Strand B and B. The beach itself wasnt signposted when we were there( surprise, surprise) but if you follow the ‘White Strand’ B and B signs they will take you there.
