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.

Wild Atlantic Way Beaches

The majority of which have the same name or a variation of it. Trá is the Irish for beach, and Bán means white, so wherever you see a sign for Trá Bán (or a sandcastle) you know you are in for a treat, if it’s not raining. There are variations “Thallabawn” (literally white ground) or the English Silverstrand, there are dozens of those. And apart from the famous surfing beaches at Rossnowlagh, Strandhill and Lehinch to name but a very few they are empty most of the time, not because you might get frostbite in July but because there are so many. Donegal has one for everyday of the year, Ballymastocker Bay on Fanad Head is thought to be one of  the beach in the world!

Stunning Secluded Strands

Even on the hottest day of the year last year I counted 10 people on it. Keel and Keem in particular on Achill Island have a cult following while Coumeenole on the Slea Head Drive in Dingle is regarded as a national treasure and a regular subject of Irish landscape photographers on Facebook. Inch Strand (again in Dingle) alerted the world to Ireland’s beauty when it featured in the movie “Ryan’s Daughter” 40 years ago. West Cork has secluded little turquoise bays and show stoppers like Barleycove where if you are lucky you might find a blue glass bead washed up from the wreck of a Spanish galleon.

Wild Atlantic Way Accommodation

There are lots of wonderful bed and breakfast accommodation along the Wild Atlantic Way Coastal Route, many just a stones throw away from spectacular sandy beaches with the kind of views that will take you breath away. How wonderful to wake to the sound of the Atlantic waves caressing the shoreline. Enjoy a peaceful nights sleep and then look  forward to a delicious freshly cooked breakfast in idyllic surroundings. Enjoy a stroll along the secluded sandy beach before heading out on your next adventure along the Wild Atlantic Way!
