When you think of Ireland your mind might evoke thoughts of Guinness beer more then it would of a country for nudism. However, this green island has become of late a hotspot for naturists. Ireland benefits from the warm Gulf Stream, which makes bathing possible over large parts of the summer.

Roundstone is surrounded by breathtaking natural surroundings, with rivers, beaches and mountains. Which make for a nice walk as you making your way to the nudist beach.
