If you want a swim before breakfast there is a a lovely safe sandy Blue Flag beach just at the bottom of the garden. The crystal clear water can be described as fresh (14C+) in Summer but it will leave you feeling invigorated. It’s suitable for all ages.
There are other Blue Flag beaches within a short drive on the Ring of Kerry, Rossbeigh and Derrynane being the nearest.
For the more adventurous there are surf schools and other watersports available within a short drive.
