The little jewel at the end of the road. Quite simply a stunning little beach about as far west as you can go in Ireland. The drive out over the headland is a thing of beauty and should be seen by everyone at least once...More

I can't believe the beauty on our doorstep, Keem beach & the drive there are stunning. Follow this with a climb up to the old lookout and the views blow you away! Incredible!!

Visited 1/8/18. Too windy to stay. Great life guard standing in the surf looking out for surfers in the surf. Well done lifeguards in such adverse conditions.

Spent a couple of beautiful days in keen while home on holidays. The kids had a brilliant time. The water was surprisingly warm, and the kayaking is a great new addition. Tasty treats adds to the old school beach feel. No where like it.
