Get the sat nav out for this one. It's worth the meander down to beach where there is a car park and a wonderful safe sandy beach. A bit windy but you can hide in the dunes. Rge sea was wonderful. Go there

This beach is in the back of beyonds in an amazing setting under the Connemara hills. Water was cold but still nice for swimming. We practically had the place to ourselves.

Near Renvyle, brown signpost to the beach. One-track road for about a km,to a glorious sweep of white sand. Only about 4 people there when we were there in perfect weather.

From Tully Cross you need to take the road next to the church, opposite Paddy Coynes. Look out for signs for west scuba diving school, it's in the same place. Definitely worth finding.
