Cahore Beach

 

Cahore is a Green Coast Beach.

The "South Beach", which is just 2 minutes walk from Cahore Holiday & Leisure Park, is a massive sandy beach that begins just behind Cahore Castle, and stretches for miles and miles to the south - more than 20 miles, in fact, all the way past Curracloe, near Wexford town.

Even at high tide, the beach itself is huge; at low tide, it's quite a walk just to reach the shoreline! It's one of the longest beaches in the whole country, and may be very familiar to movie-lovers: Much of the bloody D-Day landings featured in the movie Saving Private Ryan were filmed on the beach further south at Ballinesker. As well as being popular with summertime bathers, the South Beach also provides excellent fishing for sea anglers.
