Silver Strand, County Donegal
There is only one beach of the name Silver Strand in Donegal and that cannot be mistaken with anything. The beach is located near Glencolmcille and has got the shape of a horseshoe. This form provides a stunning visual experience with the land embracing the water forming a beautiful bay.
There are some lovely places to stay in for the night, some with very competitive rates, like the Malinbeg Hostel near the beach.
Ballymastocker, County Donegal
We are in Donegal again – no wonder, the county is well known for its wonderful beaches. Ballymastocker is one of the best in the world, mainly because of its breathtaking beauty. The beach is divided into three parts by two small patches of grassy and rocky land.
You can take some great pictures from up the road and if you stay for a few days, there are a few cozy places to stay and enjoy some Irish hospitality.
Inch Strand, County Kerry
Beside being a true sandy paradise of beach lovers, Inch Strand is widely known for being the filming location for the 1970 movie, Ryan’s Daughter about the love of an Irish woman and a British officer during World War I.
The place is not only one of the best movie beaches, but also great for swimming and water sports. However, if you would rather just sit back and enjoy the amazing view, there is a bistro with a large deck at the beach where you can do that as well.
Bertra, County Mayo
The large beach of Bertra is simply fabulous, it provides one of the most stunning views in Ireland, which is quite a big deal knowing how amazing the country is. The beach is located on a patch of land which enters the water of the bay. Clarke Island is close enough, so you can see it perfectly from the beach.
