Coumeenoole Beach, Dingle

#2 of 8 in Parks in Dingle
Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Set against a dramatic backdrop of sheer cliffs, Coumeenoole Beach attracts tourists and locals with its picturesque surroundings and stunning ocean views. The small, secluded strip of golden sand gets even narrower during the high tide. This wild beach is easily accessible from the small parking lot at the top of a cliff. Pay attention to the signboards warning against swimming in the strong currents. You can always dip your feet in one of the shallow pools in the sand.

  • It was late sep so no swim but just being there and taking the walk down the winding road famous from Ryans Daughter aslways gives me pleasure.  more »
  • Great small beach. Dangerous to swim but very exciting if you do. Not for beginners. Some surfers if the tide is right. Parking can be tight in sunny day.  more »
