Rosslare Strand Beach is one of Wexford’s most popular beaches and is located next to Rosslare Village, at the southern end of Wexford Harbour. This Blue Flag beach is a ‘go-to’ destination for swimming (lifeguard on duty during the Summer months), strolling and families of all ages.
The name ‘The Sunny South East’ stems from this area as it prides itself on being the sunniest place in Ireland, receiving about 300 hours more sunshine each year than the national average.
The beach features both sand and stone and is divided into sections by a number of wooden breakwaters that are designed to prevent the beach from erosion.
Even outside of the summer months, the coastline doesn’t lose its beauty and makes for a gorgeous, bracing walk to open the lungs.
