Small but perfectly formed. Is this Ireland’s smallest beach? When we were there it measured about 45 yards long and 25 yards deep. Despite that this a very nice place for a cooling dip.
The ‘beach’ is located just to the side of the pier and the water is both deep and sheltered. This is a good place to cool off on a sunny day. Out at the end of the pier young people practice their jumping skills into the deep water.
Parking is very limited but there is a pub just at the pier where you can warm up if you need to.
From Tralee take the N86 toward Dingle. Then you branch off for Castlegregory onto the R560. You bypass Castlegregory and go through Stradbally and Kilcummin. Watch out then for a right turn onto the R550 signposted for Cloghane and Brandon. Keep on this road through Cloghane and you will come to a right turn signposted for the pier.
