This is one of the most stunning beaches in West Cork and should be rated as a top beach in the world. The sand is silver and a wonderful place to walk both in the day and night. There is surf school there but I haven't used it yet. I have been using the beach all y life when I... More

Lovely peaceful beach that is located by the inchydoney lodge and spa. Perfect for a morning stroll and watching the sunset.

We just had a beautiful walk on Inchydoney beach. A crescent moon, shooting stars and frozen sand crunching under our feet! The tide was way out and Dunmore and Inchydoney Hotels were lit up so we had enough light to navigate by and were able to rearm with hot chocolate and more in the hotel bar!

This is one of the most stunning beaches is the world. Great for walking whether tide is in or out. If you have dogs they will have a ball here. Surf school is also a good addition. Parking can be difficult during summer. A must see beach.

The Clonakilty coastline is very beautiful, but this Celtic Tigre era hotel is a real eyesore and totally detracts from what would otherwise be a beauty spot. The sandy beach is really nice, but take care while swimming, as cross currents can be strong.

They loved it and the view is stunning and I would love to get married here. We popped into the hotel... More
