Ballinskelligs is a real family beach with some decent facilities. The beach itself is curved and nice and sandy. The water is clear and there is a gentle slope into the sea.
At one end of the beach there is a ruined tower which you access across a stream. It looks like a good place for kids to explore. At the entrance to the beach itself there is a nice coffee shop with indoor and outdoor seating
Ballinskelligs has lifeguards in the summer, a decent car park and public toilets. The beach appears to be reasonably accessible.
Blue Flag beach.
Ballinskelligs is located off the N70 Ring of Kerry road. If you are coming from the Caherciveen direction you will take a right turn onto the R566. Follow the signposts which will lead you to the beach
