Just loved this section of the Dingle, not so many people on the road to the point and such an atmospheric location. The creek, point and sand were spectacular and I couldn’t get over the pink sand which no one else seems to notice.

Been here a number of times. Be very careful if you decide to drive to the pier! Very narrow entrance with sharp drop off. Nice little display at the top where you can park and walk down. We have seldon ever seen anyone else here.

This was our last stop on our drive. Worth the drive of the main road, off the beaten path but lovely spot for photo not to mention the history.

Exploring Brandon Creek is great when the sun is shining. Fun for all the family, regardless of age. Make sure you have wellies or don't mind getting your feet wet. Not so good if the weather is miserable.

Brandon creek is located on the Dingle peninsula. (north of Smerwick harbour). You can drive down to the creek,... slowly!! We, ( Irish People) believe that St. Brendan sailed from here and discovered America BEFORE Christopher Columbas! Very scenic.

Lovely hidden spot where you can find peace in the constant motion of the sea. You can contemplate the courage of the ancient monks heading off on their epic journey

This small but unique place in the Ballydavid area must be one of the most historical and interesting places in Ireland. Mount Brendan in the back, the wild waters of the creek flowing to the deep blue waters of the sea.

My wife wanted to see this since Brandon is supposed to have left form here. It is a sort of canyon going into the ocean, quite pretty, but relatively long drive on narrow road to see it and turn around and go back. Lots of...More

The tours buses don't go here, thankfully- as apart from anything else, there's no space. Cuas is a little sheltered harbour from where St. Brendan the Navigator sailed with some of his monastic companions to "discover" America ahead of Columbus. The adventurer, Tim Severin ,...More
