Brandon Pier

July 2012

Small but perfectly formed. Is this Ireland's smallest beach? When we were there it measured about 45 yards long and 25 yards deep. Despite that this a very nice place for a cooling dip.

The 'beach' is located just to the side of the pier and the water is both deep and sheltered. This is a good place to cool off on a sunny day. Out at the end of the pier young people practice their jumping skills into the deep water.

Parking is very limited but there is a pub just at the pier where you can warm up if you need to.

Directions:

From Tralee take the N86 toward Dingle. Then you branch off for Castlegregory onto the R560. You bypass Castlegregory and go through Stradbally and Kilcummin. Watch out then for a right turn onto the R550 signposted for Cloghane and Brandon. Keep on this road through Cloghane and you will come to a right turn signposted for the pier.
