Rossbeigh Beach, Glenbeigh
Rossbeigh is a long and attractive family beach with very good facilities.
A few concrete paths, which look to be both wheelchair and buggy accessible, lead you onto the beach which is a bit open and windy. The water is clear and sandy underfoot. When we were there it was wavy and not easy for swimming. More a place where young people would enjoy jumping in the waves.
When the tide is in the beach almost disappears and when it is out there is good room for walking, playing and even horse riding.
Rossbeigh is a Blue Flag beach and lifeguards are on duty during the summer months. The facilities include a playground, basketball and tennis courts and clean toilets. There are also some picnic tables, one of which is in a covered area – a sensible touch. Well done Kerry County Council.
There is plenty of room for car parking , although the area is rough and stony.
From Killarney take the N72 to Killorglin and from there the N70 toward Caherciveen. As you pass through the town watch for the right turn signposted for the beach.
