Ross Beach is hard to find, but well worth getting to, as it is stunning and one of Ireland's Blue Flag beaches.
I hit on it by accident, as I was driving around looking for somewhere else. When I saw the sign for this beach (and as I so very much love the seaside) I took a turn off the main road and followed the little side road. As it got smaller and smaller, and eventually turned into a dirt track with grass growing up the middle, I almost gave up and turned back, convinced I had taken a wrong turn. As it was so narrow at that point I could only go on in one direction - forward - and after 3km I came upon this amazing place.
Here one perfect beach leads to another. I rolled up my skirt, took off my shoes, and paddled in the water letting the gentle little wavelets lap at my ankles. The sun was shining warmly, but not hot, and it was just like heaven.
The water is crystal clear and the sand is clean. Highly recommended.
