Venture along the Irish coast and visit its beaches


Travelers often think that the Irish coast only consists of cliffs that plunge into deep blue waters. But did you know that the coastline is also home to beaches? Stop off in County Sligo in the northwestern part of the island to discover around 20 sandy coves.

Popular among horseback riders and surfers alike, we recommend stopping at Curracloe Beach in the southeastern part of the country to admire its wild beauty. The West Coast’s Killary Fjord is also synonymous with unspoiled natural landscapes. Dubbed Ireland's only fjord, it still remains largely unknown. Hike on your own, or with a guide, and explore this setting carved by an ancient glacier. 

If you’re looking to enjoy the Irish coast’s must-sees from a different angle, opt for a boat ride. The Cliffs of Moher look even more spectacular from the sea. Finally, don't miss out on the Giant's Causeway’s basalt columns in Northern Ireland.
