Garryvoe Beach, West Cork

June 2011

Sheltered in Ballycotton Bay, Garryvoe is a popular summer beach, good for swimming and walking.

When we were there the water was calm and good for swimming, even if the day was dull. You are reasonably quickly into your depth, but it seems to be safe for kids to splash and play.

There is plenty of room on the beach and there are some rocks for shelter. The ramp from the car park onto the beach is fairly steep, but it does give wheelchair and buggy access.

Lifeguards are on duty in the summer. There is good car parking and toilets nearby. Picnic tables and a play area complete a good set of facilities for a family outing
