Fionn Davenport, a writer for leading travel publication Lonely Planet, has revealed the top ten beaches that Ireland has on offer.

In its latest round-up of sandy, wild and breathtaking beaches, the publication included Inch Strand and Banna Strand in Co. Kerry as well as Keem Bay on Achill Island which was once named as one of the best beaches in all of Europe.

The prestigious publication – long the go-to resource for ambitious and adventurous travellers – has built a global following for its recommendations and insider travel tips.

"Ireland's coastline is a rich, 6200km-long necklace of glorious spots where the land meets the sea. From quiet coves known only to a few to great stretches of golden sand that are a destination in their own right, Ireland's coastline is a beachgoer’s paradise," wrote Fionn.

Here is the list of Ireland's best beaches, as chosen by Lonely Planet:
