Two Beaches To Visit In County Kerry On A Sunny Day.

We visited two beaches in Kerry after the carboot sale in County Limerick on Saturday.

Camp church.  It's in Camp next to Tralee Bay and also on the Dingle Way.


The beach at Camp.  It's  incredibly long.  Over twelve miles.  I walked it all a few years ago.  Yesterday  we heard courting  seals talking to each other.  Amazing to hear:

  "How ya doing girl?"   " I've got to go for the messages boy".





Notice at Inch beach.  
 


Traffic cones on Inch beach.  You probably remember the beach in the horse race scene in Ryan's Daughter?

Looking out to sea.  The beaches aren't so full and they are free for everyone to discover and walk and swim.

Ireland is so incredibly beautiful especially when it's warm and the old currant bun in the sky is shining down on us.

I'm back on my free morning cruise today to the island for another weeks work.  I will reply to any comments tonight!

  1. In the summer of 1975 I slept in my tent amidst the dunes at Inch. I remember there were lots of sandhoppers there and with another free camper I collected lots of them and boiled them up for lunch. They were disgusting - not like shrimps at all - and filled with sand.

  2. Sounds like a great holiday memory YP? The Irish beaches are so unspoilt and remind me of those uncrowded English beaches I have read about in the 1950s. I never tire of visiting these beaches. Thanks for your Kerry holiday memories YP.

    1. It's really hard to walk twelve miles on sand Linda. It's great for a short walk. Thanks!

  6. I love long beaches - really long ones like Druridge Bay near where I grew up - all twenty miles of it.

  7. Carboot sales AND two beaches! Life has certainly become more cheering there! I am so very happy for all of you, Northsider. You've waited an awfully long time for a day like this.
