Attraction Information

Grab your bucket and spades and get ready for an action packed day of adventure and exploring at Derrynane Beach. The award winning home of endangered species like the Natterjack awaits you for an unforgettable, coastal experience.

How does kayaking through the crashing Irish waves sound? Or maybe an underwater adventure? Dive in and try your hand at some snorkelling to see the magical home of toads, nature, and wildflowers - perfect for little explorers. The natural harbour is also a great place for a paddle and some splashing around. Lifeguards are on hand through the bathing season to ensure everyone has a happy, safe swim.

The soft, melt into your toes sand will easily mould itself into big, extravagant sand castles - just don't forget the moat! Or maybe a coastal adventure, which takes you on a short (so no tired little legs) walking circuit to experience views of the nearby mountains, islands and beaches. After all that exploring, splashing around and sandcastle building it’s time to refuel. Head off to the nearby Blind Piper restaurant which serves hot tasty food all year round.

  • Award winning beach, home to endangered species and nature.
