One of our favourite Sunday afternoon activities is a long walk along Redbarn Strand (near Youghal in East Cork), followed by lunch or dinner in one of the towns seafood restaurants.
Redbarn is a breath-taking wide open strand with miles of blue flag beach. At any time of the year, to walk along its length is a wonderful thing to do, with all that peace, quite and fresh air. After working up a hunger and/or thirst and because you are situated so close to Youghal, we highly recommend taking in one of the many great restaurants in the town.
Cork may not always have the most idyllic weather conditions, but it certainly has many great beaches for a fun day out. Whether you are looking for a romantic walk on the beach, or just somewhere to bring the kids and the dog for some fresh air, Redbarn Strand is a splendid stretch of land for all to enjoy.
