This will increase to seven days per week on all of those beaches from the beginning of July with 41 lifeguards, who are fully trained, on duty on Kerry beaches over the summer.

Beachgoers are reminded that lifeguards are only on duty during specific times which are advised locally on each Blue Flag beach and that lifeguards cover only designated patrolled areas which are indicated by the presence of lifeguard flags.

Kerry County Council is reminding all beachgoers and those swimming and bathing at the county’s beaches this summer to act responsibly and safely in the water at all times.

Kerry has 15 Blue Flags for 2022 which were recently awarded by the Blue Flag International Jury (FEE) for meeting a series of high standards – the largest number of such beaches in the country. These include: Rossbeigh, Ballybunion South, Ballybunion North, Ballyheigue, Fenit, Maherbeg, Kells, Doire Fhíonáin (Derrynane), White Strand, Baile an Sceilg (Ballinskelligs), Banna, Fionntrá (Ventry), Inch, Fenit Marina and Portmagee Seasonal Pontoon.

As of August 2021, a green card (or international motor insurance card) is no longer required for travel in the European Economic Area.

This area includes all the European Union countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. You also don’t need a green card for Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Switzerland.

If you are travelling with your vehicle to the named counties you will still need to bring:

Your certificate of motor insurance
Your vehicle licencing certificate
Your driving licence
Your passport

If you are taking a company owned, hired or borrowed vehicle, you will need a letter of authorisation from the registered owner along with the vehicle licencing certificate.

It is important to check the legal requirements for the country you are driving in. Some EU countries including France will require you to carry the following items:

Reflective jackets for each occupant of the vehicle
Warning triangle
Headlamp beam deflectors
Breathalyser test
Spare bulb kit
First Aid Kit (compulsory in Austria, France and Germany)

It is advisable to have your travel insurance details, European breakdown cover details, health insurance details and your European Health Insurance card in your possession. Travel safe.
