Coumeenoole Beach

Located on the South-Western tip of the Dingle peninsula, Coumeenoole beach is a remote little alcove that provides a unique backdrop for any production (including David Lean’s 1970’s film, ‘Ryan’s Daughter’). 

There is parking for about ten cars and it is possible to drive down to the beach if necessary (this is not recommended for larger vehicles as it is a sharp incline with no room for turning). The beach is without toilets or electrical power and the nearest village for amenities is Dunquin, four kilometres away. Swimming here is dangerous due to strong currents.
