This has to be the nicest beach I have ever visited. Not crowded, perhaps due to time of year. Clean, stunning views, blue seas. Fantastic.

Beautiful beach. Travelled in December but were blessed with a beautiful day. My daughter and her new husband were able to have some lovely photos taken on the beach

As a beach for playing or for walks, nature watching or for scenery it has it all. The sea was good for swimming with a gentle sloping beach and never a tide of real concern as safe as the sea can be. Also excellent for rock pools and has a nearby scuba school offering scuba and snorkelling.

I always visit Galway in September, so the weather isn't always the best. It is generally quite cold and raining, with gale force winds from time to time. The beach itself is great for walking and swimming if the weather is appropriate.

During the winter there can be a bit of a gale blowing though it is a lovely walk for the family or on your own. Most beautiful wild place to get a true insight into the Wild West

Gotta dress warmly in Windy weather but cobwebs will be well gone after a stroll. Its one of many beauty spots in the area. Unspoilt views and guilt free coffee and scones will replenish the soul once walkx completed. A real treat for beach lovers and stone collectors!

This is a beautiful beach, especially on a sunny day. It's not so much a great swimming beach, but a fun beach to hike around and there are tons of beautiful shells that make it a fun place to visit with kids!

Renvyle beach is one of the finest and cleanest beaches in Ireland. A vast area of sand and sea, for as far as the eye can see. Beautiful setting.
