Ireland's best beach is Dogs Bay in Co Galway.

It's followed by Trá Mór in Co Donegal, and Keem Bay in Achill in Co Mayo, according to the latest list from the Lonely Planet.

Others among the top ten include Banna Strand in Co Kerry, and Ballyquin Beach in Co Waterford.

Just one Dublin beach makes the list, with Killiney Beach named at number ten.

Lonely Planet says: "As city beaches go, this one in the south Dublin suburb of Killiney is a treat. The long stony beach is backed up by some of the most exclusive addresses in Dublin, the homes of some of the biggest celebrities like Bono and Enya, who have unfettered views of the wide arc of Killiney Bay, which is said to bear more than a striking resemblance to the Bay of Naples – hence the Italian names of many of the streets around here.

"The beach itself is popular with swimmers, walkers, and families on a day out: on a fine day you’ll be in plenty of company, but the walk from end to end is one of the nicest in Dublin."
