Each summer my extended family rents a summer home for a week for a family get together. (10 to 12 people) Next summer we are are thinking of Ireland. Most everyone is based in the States, except my family we are in Japan. Although I am part Irish, but I don't know too much about the country. We would like to find a nice area that is scenic, and is close to water that you can swim in. (the ocean, lake or pool) I don't think we want to be in a big city. Being one or two hours away from a major airport is preferable. We would probably have to rent cars. Any suggestions?

Second West Cork or Kerry both about an hour or 2 away from Cork Airport and even a do-able drive but long-ish drive from Shannon or Dublin.

Killarney is lovely although very touristy. The sea is even bearable in late summer due to the gulf stream passing by.
