Barley Cove Beach

Barley Cove Beach

Barleycove Beach, located in West Cork

This sandy beach is situated between two headlands on the Mizen Peninsula in West Cork and comprises an extensive dune system. There is an interesting floating bridge in place to manage visitor access and reduce impact on natural surroundings.

Nearest recommended accommodation:

Recognised by many as one of the world's finest beaches, Barleycove is far enough away from a major population centre so as to never be overcrowded but yet has the facilities of a hotel nearby and the towns of Bantry and Skibbereen are within easy driving distance.
