Inchydoney Beach reviews
Good serene beach, breezy & visual treat to eyes. Spent a good peaceful afternoon walking on the beach. Limited parking space.
It's a nice and clean beach and surprisingly big compared to other beaches in Cork. You can enjoy a small Cliff walk also that is adjacent to the beach. Had a great time playing football, cricket and frisbee! We also took a pop-up shelter to set up our little picnic. A must-visit on a sunny day with low tide. If you are lucky, you can get parking closer to the beach otherwise it's a 5 minute walk. Parking is free
