Inchydoney Beach

Contact Information

The Blue Flag beach at Inchydoney Island, just a few miles from Clonakilty, is renowned not only as one of the most family-friendly beaches in West Cork but also as one of the most beautiful. Vast expanses of sand and dunes provide excellent surfing conditions. Inchydoney Beach is on the Wild Atlantic Way and has often been named Ireland’s favourite beach by international tourists on TripAdvisor. The approach road to the car park is quite narrow and during the summer months, it can be quite difficult to find a parking spot. Although the beach itself is popular, there is plenty of room for everyone here and it never feels overcrowded. There are lifeguards on duty in the summer months. There is a public car park and toilets and access via ramps and steps. 🐕 Dogs are required to be on a leash and spoiling must be removed 💩
