Barleycove Beach on the South coast of Ireland is considered one of the finest beaches of West Cork where tourists can have a lot of fun and frolic. Located nearby Mizen Head on the Mizen Peninsula, the surroundings of Barleycove provide ample scenic views of the beauty of nature. This not-so-overcrowded beach and its surroundings witness the highest number of visitors during summers. Owing to the wildlife diversity and the fauna found in its expansive dune system, the beach has been officially declared as a Special Area of Conservation by European Union. Furthermore, the float bridge that has been constructed to manage visitor traffic puts less stress on the natural surroundings of the area.
Facilities: Barley Cove Beach Hotel and Durrus Holiday Cottages
