Keel Beach

Irish West Coast
Keel is a popular surf-spot year-round – and there's plenty to enjoy with a sail or kite too. It’s best in a north-westerly wind with W to SW swell. The launch is at the second car-park, by the campsite. The waves are smaller in the north of the bay, increasing in size further south. But you’ll have to contend with gusty conditions as the imposing Mount Minaun to the south creates dirty wind. Accommodation's no problem in Keel either: campsites, B&Bs, holiday homes – this place has it all.
