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.

We stopped off on a trip around Slea Head, mainly due to Christy Moore’s song about the place! It’s a lovely beach, good parking for a campervan, Jelly fish were in unfortunately but we still enjoyed its beauty.

The closest beach to our Airbnb and blue flagged so we thought it would be perfect for the kids. How wrong we were, the amount of dog poo all along the beach was a disgrace. Add to that all the horse poo as well and it made for a pretty awful experience.

During the summer months at least, Ventry beach should be dog and horse free.

On top of that, and I appreciate nothing can be done about this, is the amount of seeweed and jelly fish on the shore line and in the water.

So disappointing.

Lovely beach for swimming, walking and relaxing. Needs more vigilance about dog poo removal and horses should not be exercised during family hours

Gorgeous sandy beach with very calm, flat and clear water - perfect for swimming and for children. Only one downside: there is a lot of dog poo! We were here for a week and have seen a lot of people not clean up after their dogs. This is very surprising for a blue flag beach.

Visited the beach with a few friends for a quick swim, ended up staying for over three hours! Beautiful spot, amazing landscape and the sun was shining, felt like we were in Spain. Water wasn't too cold either, the grass is great to sit by as a natural windbreaker.

Lovely days spent on this lovely beach. It has a long stretch so everyone can spread out and enjoy their own space. Water was calm and the place is pristine.

A lovely beach for a walk. It was quite busy but if you walk by all the tourists at the start, it’s begins to thin out

This is a wonderful county, rugged and wild, with more sheep than people! But Ventry is a beautiful "strand" which seems to last for ever. Good weather is not guaranteed!%
