Along with ‘Trà Mòrs and ‘ White Strands’ Ireland has its fair share of Golden Strands and this is Achill’s version . It’s located just a few kilometres from the other Doogort beach and this one is much bigger and more open.
The beach is wide and curved with a large grassy area behind it. The water isn’t too deep as you enter and there is plenty of room here for kids to play. And, almost needless to remark, there was no one else swimming here when we visited on a nice day in June. Wimps or what?
There is decent car parking and the beach is buggy accessible but not for wheelchairs.
If you are into camping there is a simple but good camp site just behind the beach and a local pub nearby.
Check with Kerry County Council regarding lifeguards. As for the other Doogort beach , there was a lifeguard hut but no one on duty in early June.
Blue Flag beach .
As for the other Doogort beach. If you take the right turn indicated you will arrive at this beach first.
