Location: Barleycove, County Cork, Ireland
Barley Cove is a sandy beach located in Co. Cork. It's situated in a sheltered bay between Mizen Head and Lyroe peninsulas close to the Southwesterly tip of Ireland. The beach is in a rural area and could be tricky to find for first-time visitors. This Blue Flag awarded beach is one of the nicest beaches in Cork. It brings you a lovely view over the dramatic Cork coastline, and when the sun shines you will feel the beauty of the beach. This picturesque beach provides a habitat to a variety of animal life and it was designated an EU Special Area of Conservation. Great place to come with family and enjoy some quality times. There are toilet and car parking facilities, and there is a seasonal hotel next to the beach, and it offers great views across the bay.
