I’d absolutely love to tell you that I intentionally planned on hitting up Inch Beach just as the sun was setting.

That I meticulously planned out our route with military-like precision.

That we didn’t roll into Inch an hour behind schedule because we spent the guts of 45 minutes lashing stones into a river

As I said – I’d love to tell you that, but – as we say in Ireland – I’d be talking out of my hole.

It was a complete and utter fluke.

Here’s the scene we were greeted with as we strolled on to Inch Beach in County Kerry.

A bit about Inch Beach

You’ll find Inch Beach on the Dingle Peninsula, nestled between Dingle Harbour and Castlemaine Harbour.

Popular with surfers, the beach boasts the ideal setting for an evening stroll or, if you’re unperturbed by the cold, a refreshing dip in the sea.

One of the most popular beaches on the peninsula, Inch is hailed as the largest uninterrupted sand beach in western Europe.

As you ramble along its sandy shores, framed by Dingle Bay and the mountains of Kerry, you’re hit with the undeniable feeling that you’ve just discovered one of earth’s hidden, unspoiled gems.

If weather permits, grab a cup of coffee in the restaurant just off the strand and sit out on the little patio they have out front.

What more could you honestly ask for?
