Old Head Blue Flag beach is one of the most picturesque beaches in Ireland. Overlooked by a woodland to the west and Croagh Patrick, this beach has beautiful rock-pools that are exposed when the tide is out.

The beach is sheltered from the south and west and is therefore well-suited for swimming. Lifeguards are on duty through the summer months, the beach is accessible for wheelchairs, as are the toilets. There is a pier at the western end of the beach, sheltering a small anchorage popular with local sailors and fishermen.
