#1 of 2 Outdoor Activities in Roundstone
This beach is definitely worth a visit, white sand with dunes, calm waters, beautiful scenaries with the typical Irish view of grass close to the sea, offering a wonderful color palette.
A wander around the three back to back beaches on this peninsula is divine, all shallow and calm, on a sunny day their waters glow.

... such a joy to stroll along the velvet strand on my return home for the holiday season.. Miles if unbroken golden sands with lovely views of Howth and Ireland's Eye in front of you and Lambay Island to your left.
Has to be one of the nicest beaches to walk in Dublin, great length as feels like it goes on forever, when tide out great width so plenty of space for everyone.

Ross Beach

#1 of 3 Outdoor Activities in Killala
The section beside the car park is quite shallow and ideal for swimming when the tide is high, while the section on the right has strong currents as indicated by signs.
It's a beautiful area and very well serviced with picnic areas and tables, lifeguard and toilets (not clean but there nonetheless).

#70 of 154 Outdoor Activities in Dublin
If you take a quick trip on the DART from Central Dublin to Seapoint you can commence a superb walk along by the sea at Seapoint Beach as far as the Forty Foot in Sandycove.
It's tidal though so three hours either side of high tide is nice otherwise you're in for a bit of a walk to get some depth.
