Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really stunning beach, worth the drive. Lifeguards patrolling and helpful. The old ruins/cemetery is a nice walk too. Not much in the way of services like food/drink so pack your own.

We stopped here for about an hour during our Ring of Kerry drive and it was really beautiful and not crowded. My son enjoyed running around (water is extremely cold, though calm enough for kids to swim/wade) and my parents enjoyed a stroll over to the cemetery. Gorgeous sand, rocks, and sea birds. The day we visited, there was a beached minke whale. Toilets just up a short trail from the free car park, which had lots of space. Derrynane House just nearby. Definitely worth the stop along the Ring of Kerry- especially with kids.

Gorgeous views in all directions and a beautiful samdy beach with a nature reserve behind. Stop off for an hour or so on your ring of Kerry visit and you won’t regret it! No cafe but there is a toilet and lifeguard near the free car park.

In a county with loads of great beaches this is close to our no. 1 . The water is so clear and pure and the sand is pristine . The Irish historical figur Daniel O Connell lived close by and the rumours that the family smuggled things around here is very plausible when you see this location.
Highly recommended.
