There are lots of sandy coves and beautiful beaches near Kenmare.  If you’re in the mood to stroll along a deserted sandy beach or simply want to let the kids run wild and build sandcastles, two of the best beaches are Castlecove or Derrynane.  The latter is a 30 minute drive along the Ring of Kerry, but well worth it.  When there make sure to pop into Bridie Keatings, a traditional old style pub located just behind the beach.  Keating’s pub serves good fashioned pub grub – soup, sandwiches, and of course stout – all very appealing after a long day of sun, sea and sand.
