| 10 Places to Stay

The coastal village of Ballyheigue may be small, but it holds many attractions for visitors. It's ideal for a beach holiday, being blessed with wide golden sands that curve all round the bay from Banna Strand to Kerry Head, with clean, safe water for swimming. Ballyheigue Bay is one of south-west Ireland's great surfing spots, also enjoyed by windsurfers and kitesurfers. Anglers may hope to catch bass, flounder, pollock and mackerel around these parts. There's fun and games for all the family during the village's annual summer festival week, with one highlight being horse racing on the beach - a popular event that's held again as part of the New Year celebrations. Another fascinating attraction for children is the Maritime Centre, whose displays include a whale skeleton. Ballyheigue Castle Golf Club boasts a particularly beautiful course set in wooded parkland surrounding an early 19th Century ruined castle, with views of the bay and Brandon Mountain. Ballyheigue is an ideal base for walkers and cyclists, with a variety of scenic cliff and mountain routes to explore nearby, and drivers are conveniently placed to visit some of the county's most breath-taking sights, not least the Dingle Peninsula and the Lakes of Killarney.
