The Irish coastline is underestimated. Especially when we have wonderful weather. Whether you are passing through Ireland or a resident eager to spend a holiday, it is impossible not to recognize the beauty of Ireland when the sun is shining.
We’ve put together a list of Ireland’s finest AirBnBs with direct beach access. Whether it’s for an evening swim or a relaxing day in the sun, these are the places you should visit.
The first is County Cork with the beautiful, idyllic Inchydoney Beach Cottage for just € 109 a night. This cottage can accommodate up to seven people so you and your friends can put the car away and get to Cork.
The peaceful, fully furnished cottage overlooks Inchydoney Beach and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. It’s just a three minute walk to the beach with access via your own private path, so if you want a midnight swim or sneak onto the beach to watch the sunrise, you can easily get there.
Going up the island to the Donegal Breasty Bay house is on a private waterfront. This private domain costs 350 € per night but it can accommodate 6 people comfortably.
The chalet is located at Malin Head in a secluded setting with direct private sea access. The private 60 acre coastal estate is shared with only one other Skildren Cottage property also available on airbnb, so if you have more friends or family looking to go on an adventure with you you can always rent Skildren Cottage too. .
If you are interested in wildlife, you should take pleasure in observing some of the local wildlife that lives in this peninsula in the wild.
The Breasty Bay home is assessed by electric gates, so it’s the perfect place to retreat and rejuvenate.
Another option that can accommodate two people for € 90 per night is the Barn in County Donegal.
Of course, this magnificent barn has direct access to the beach.
The large open plan living room, dining room and kitchen are surrounded by panoramic sea views. The barn is within walking distance of all local amenities such as restaurants, bars and even a ferry that makes excursions of a day to the surrounding islands.
All the equipment you might need for your own al fresco dining is also provided by the hosts. With a barbecue and outdoor tables and chairs, you can sit and watch the sunset by the sea while enjoying your home cooked meal.
One gorgeous space in County Mayo is Juli’s House, which is a stand-alone home overlooking the sea.
The house is set in beautiful semi-wild gardens with views over Croagh Patrick and the Wild Atlantic Way.
Achill Island, Ballycroy National Park and Connemara are within an hour’s scenic drive, so your days will never be boring and of course there is beach access within 5 minutes .
This little getaway is more of a romantic getaway with the house accommodating 2 people for € 95 per night.
Howth in County Dublin is best known for its beaches and you can stay in a lively cabin that looks directly out to sea.
This newly built modern log cabin with spectacular Ireland’s Eye views is located at the rear of our property with private access to Burrow Beach.
The cabin is in the shadow of Howth village, but Dublin city is only 30 minutes away by train or car.
With 24-hour private access to the beach, you won’t want to come home.
