seaside activities in kerry

If you love the water there are some super seaside activities in Kerry to choose from.

Here are just a few we thought you’d enjoy.


Horse Riding at Rossbeigh

10 minutes by car from Caragh Lake is Rossbeigh – a beautiful long sandy Blue Flag beach!

If you enjoy horse riding Burkes offer treks along the strand – an amazing setting.

You can also go for a swim, roam the sand dunes, or hike along the shore; and for the kids, other than building ginormous sandcastles, there’s a great little playground to enjoy all year round.

A firm favourite of ours, whatever the weather.


Surfing at Inch

Inch is a long Blue Flag sandy beach on the Dingle Peninsula, about 40 minutes by car from the house.

With some great swell and two surf schools (Kingdom Waves and Offshore Surf School), each offering tuition for all ages as well as board and wet suit hire, what more can you ask for?!


Sailing at Valentia

Valentia Island, just off the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way, is an hour’s drive from the house but well worth the journey.

Just off the pier at Knightstown Valentia Island Sea Sports & Adventures offer dinghy sailing, canoeing, scuba diving and much much more.

After a day on the water, you can then take the ferry over to Renard and have dinner at the Point Restaurant – a lovely little pub right on the pier serving delicious seafood.


Sundowners in Cromane

Last but not least, one of our favourite seaside ‘activities’ is to drop by Jack’s in Cromane.

It’s right on the beach so you can have a drink, let the kids roam free and watch the sun go down.

The perfect way to end a summer’s day.
