Ireland is an island nation fringed by beautiful beaches. When I drafted this personal A-Z of Things to See in Ireland B just had to be for beach. Ireland’s beaches vary from the sunny white strands of the Celtic Sea, the ferry ports on the Irish Sea, and the rugged and varied beaches that face the Atlantic Ocean. It would be very difficult indeed to pass by a beach on a list of things to see in Ireland. With so many hundred of miles of coastline there can never be a definitive list of beaches in my A-Z of Things to See in Ireland.
