Life's a Beach with B&B Ireland

Ireland offers many things to see and do and there is much exploring to be had. Independent travel offers a magical experience like no other – largely because the experience is what you chose, when you chose and how you chose. Go off the beaten track a little and go explore!

Ireland has some really stunning beaches and perhaps it’s time to go and find them for yourself. Ireland is simply full of beautiful blue flag beaches, quaint fishing villages and wonderful sandy places to enjoy.

The most popular of Ireland's beaches are found on the east coast, they can be busier too because of their location and close proximity to Dublin and generally a bit more commercial. However, the West Coast offers beautiful, secluded private beaches – beaches that seem as though they were put there just for you.

Portsalon & the Fanad Peninsula

Once called the second most beautiful beach in the world! This is a quiet – almost private - stunning Blue Flag Beach which offers sandy coves, clear waters that are safe for swimming, beautiful drives along the cliffs towards the light house and passing the Knockalla Fort there is an incredibly scenic golf course in the area. You can even learn to surf while hanging out here – if you won’t miss the crowds and the hustle and bustle of busier areas, this is a wonderful place to explore. Why not choose a Donegal Bed and Breakfast to complete your relaxing Irish Experience.

Sandycove, Dublin

It does exactly what the name suggests. This used to actually be a male only beach – but nowadays it is enjoyed by all. This is a popular beach and perhaps somewhat more lively than some of the others mentioned. Here you will also find Martello Tower which is where James Joyce lived and it was featured in the opening scene of his famous book Ulysses. It is certainly worth a visit.

Fanore, County Clare

Find this beach and you will find gold! The small West Coast village of Fanore literally means the ‘golden slope’. Fanore is probably most well-known for its extensive golden sandy beach and also famed for its impressive flora and fauna. Again this is another location where you can learn to surf, walk for miles, or sit at the pub and waste some time in beautiful surroundings.

Baginbun Head, County Wexford

This is an important location, particularly for Cultural Heritage Ireland as it is home to Raymond le Gros’ fort and not only is there beautiful stretches of beaches but also a world of history to explore dating back to the Anglo-Norman Invasions of Ireland. The secluded and attractive beaches offer a lovely day for family fun, it is also situated in what some say is the sunniest part of Ireland.

Find your own Seaside Paradise

Ireland is one of those magical places that is not just easy to explore, but full of simply beautiful beaches, many of which are so quiet and secluded you could claim as your own. There is also history to learn about and explore, and you can let your imagination run wild. Ireland has many more attractions than just its beaches though and because of its ease to navigate, it can be the perfect place for a family summer holiday. Many of the beaches that you will find in Ireland are safe and clean, lots have been awarded blue flag status and offer some real magic. It is of course crucial to ensure that you follow common sense and remain safe though. Lots of the beaches have lifeguards on duty during the summer months but others are so private you may just have a few cows and sheep to watch over you.

There are of course hundreds of other beaches that you can explore, all offer different beauty, different scenes and different activities. Build sandcastles with your children, gallop bareback across the sandy dunes, go fishing, learn to surf, explore the fishing villages, eat the fresh catch of the day or just hang out, relax and listen to the waves. Ireland is largely unspoiled, peaceful and serene. There is a lot on offer for couples and families alike. Why not even take the dog?

The Best Beaches on the Wild Atlantic Way

Ireland is blessed with the best beaches in the world, Lord knows what the good man was thinking when he forgot to include endless sunshine in his creation! Probably just as well otherwise we would have ended up with cheap costas and nasty highrises and not the wealth of secluded little coves or endless miles of empty beaches we have in Ireland today.
