If you want to swim in Kilteery then time your visit. We got there when the tide was on its way out and the seaweed exposed area didn’t leave it looking its best.
Still, this is an attractive spot and must look completely different when there is a full tide. We got in down the steps behind the pier and, despite the low tide, we were out of our depth very quickly. The water was brown and sandy. We stuck close to shore as we didn’t know the local conditions. So , be careful here.
Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months. The area around the harbor is well maintained, with decent parking and a couple of picnic tables and some seats overlooking the water.
Directions: From Limerick take the R69 toward Tarbert. After the village of Loghill watch for a right turn signposted for the pier.
