Kerry has some of Ireland’s finest Blue Flag beaches.
Inch Beach is only 20 minutes drive from Milltown – three miles of magnificent sandy beach, enjoyed by swimmers, windsurfers, hang-gliders and shore anglers. In summer, take a family picnic and make a day of it and in winter, look out for the ducks and waders in the wetlands behind the dunes. These dunes have Stone Age graves and shell middens left by ancient inhabitants and more recently the beach has been the location for several Hollywood movies.
30 minutes drive away is Rossbeigh just outside Glenbeigh village – where legend has it Oisin and Niamh crossed the sea from Rossbeigh to Tír na n-Óg.
Horseracing takes place along the sand from time to time, evoking that legend.
