Ballinskelligs Bay in County Kerry is a sheltered beach and reef break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves and in addition there are both left and right reef breaks.. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for rocks.
