Portmarnock Beach, Portmarnock

(4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Kick off your shoes at Portmarnock Beach, a narrow beach with notably smooth sand and an active atmosphere. A path along the beach is a favorite for walkers, cyclers, and roller skaters. If you would rather be in the water, try your hand at wind or kite surfing. When the weather gets hot, look for the small shops with ice cream to soothe your cravings. Aviation buffs will appreciate that this was also the starting point for two important flights: one completed a trip around the world in 1930, and the other was the first to complete a solo trip around the world.

  • A very clean, clear and beautiful beach. Easy to reach with beautiful surroundings. Is also ideal for the hike, swim, play golf or simply to the relax. The local people there lives are very open and friendly people and a time-new faces also talk to. I can warmly recommend this place when you need time for yourself :) In summer it makes, but also very much fun with the family the day to spend there!
