White Sands Properties is situated off the main Ring of Kerry road, 8km South West of Killorglin Town and 6km from Glenbeigh Village, near the fishing village of Cromane. Cromane has its toes in the Atlantic and this will suggest that the main source of natural wealth are its beauty and fishing. Beautiful indeed, with stunning views of the Brandon mountain range and the Macgillicuddy reeks. While salmon and trout has been fished for generations from Cromane, the principal harvest of the area in recent years has been mussels, it is the largest natural bed in Ireland. The famous Dooks Golf Course is located just 2km away making White Sands the golfers paradise. The pebble beach at Cromane is just 1.5km away and is safe for swimming with stunning view of Slieve Mish mountain. The Cromane regatta is held from this beach. White Sands is central for touring all the scenic routes of County Kerry, including the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, the towns of Tralee and Killarney and a trip to the Skellig Rock making it the perfect base for a holiday.

What Our Guests Say
Oh to be in Kerry on a balmy summers day!
We wish we could stay longer, we don't want to go away.
For our first visit to this Isle must sadly end tomorrow.
We'll leave this lovely house and view reluctantly in sorrow.
Many a time we've gazed upon MacGillycuddy Reeks
To watch the changing colours of those great majestic peaks.
The little lake beyond the house has trilled us as it gleams
With reflected sunshine or the moons much softer beams.
Here are some excursions that we've enjoyed the most:
Body boarding at Rossbeigh, just along the coast,
Walking to Bray Head to gaze upon the Skellig Islands,
A steep climb up Mt. Mangerton with views across the highlands
The beehive huts and Gallarus near Slea Head (just past Dingle)
Where we could see the Blasket Isles and waves creating shingles
The beach at Caherdaniel with its water clear and cool,
And the hearty of our party enjoyed the sights from Carrantuohill
Two special treats in August were the Dingle Duck Race - quite insane
And the fiercesome competition at the Regatta in Cromane.
The only thing to cheer us going back to Conventry
Is the hope of coming here again when we cross the Irish Sea.
