Beaches

So breathtaking, even Hollywood has visited them. Wexford boasts a series of stretched, sandy beaches which are ideal for building sandcastles, for water-sports enthusiasts, for swimming in rock pools or collecting shells and simply enjoying the sand between your toes. Of course no trip to Wexford is complete without piling into the car for a drive, to soak up the salty spray of the ocean at one of many viewpoints where you can capture the perfect family photo set against the backdrop of Wexford’s sandy coastline. We have over 275km of coastline in County Wexford, much of which is made up of beautiful wide-open sandy beaches and spectacular coastline. Blue Flag (Courtown, Morriscastle, Rosslare, Ballinesker, Curracloe, Ballymoney North) and Green Coast beaches (Ballymoney, Cahore, Old Bawn, Culleton’s Gap, St. Helen’s Bay, Ballyhealy, Booley Bay, Grange). If it’s surfing, kite-surfing, a sand-castle making session or a secluded coastal walk, Wexford has a beach for all enthusiasts. For a fun-filled family beach day a visit to Courtown, Kilmore or Rosslare Strand is a must or enjoy the almost exotic white soft sands of Morriscastle Strand or Curracloe Beach. For a surfing adventure take a trip to Carnivan or for a secluded picnic discover Dollar Bay and many more ‘not so secret’ spots!
