Maharees Beach
Castlegregory, Co. Kerry
Discover glorious Maharees Beach on the Dingle Peninsula in Kerry. Relax on the beach, take a swim in the clear waters of the Atlantic, or bring your surfboard and test the waves.

Walk barefoot through the picturesque stretches of golden sand dunes on Maharees Beach. Admire the flocks of whooper swans that thrive in the beach’s unique ecosystem, a Special Area of Conservation.

Maharees is a famous surfing spot due to its impressive swells so don’t forget your board. Thrill seekers can book in for water-skiing or enjoy a slower pace and give angling a go. Hire a canoe and get the family out on the water or delight the kids with a day of pony trekking.

After all that activity, everyone is sure to be hungry. Head into the nearby village of Fahamore for dinner at one of the local restaurants. Feast on delicious seafood dishes and relax after a day at this beautiful beach.
