Wexford Beaches

The coastline around Wexford town is peppered with more pristine, sandy beaches than the locals can fill, even on a scorching summer day. To make it easier for you, here are a few of our favourites, depending on what seaside experience you are looking for.

Rosslare Beach

For a family day out.

Located 11km south along the coast from Wexford town, Rosslare is a great family-friendly beach. It has a blue flag for swimming, and lifeguards are on duty during the summer months. There are lots of water sports and activities such as windsurfing, kayaking and surfing available, and a top-class links golf course runs alongside.

Carne Beach

For a long walk.

Carne beach and adjoining St Margaret’s Strand in the far south east of the county together make up an idyllic setting for kicking up some sand. The beaches can get busy in the summer with kite surfers, paddling families and sea kayakers, but in the evenings you’ll likely only have to share them with one or two dog-walking locals.

Curracloe Beach

For a refreshing dip.

Famed for playing the role of Omaha beach in Saving Private Ryan, Curracloe is perhaps the most visually impressive beach in the south east. It is long, wide and clean, and the perfect spot for swimming. The expanse of sand slopes gently into the sloshing water, and the waves are generally shallow. Curracloe has a blue flag, and lifeguards are on site at the White Gap entrance during summer months.

Dollar Bay

For a relaxing picnic.

This is the perfect spot to get away from the crowds and enjoy a snippet of Wexford’s beautiful coastline in a more private setting. This sheltered beach is so-called because it’s reported that in the 1700s Spanish gold coins were buried here by mutineers of a ship sailing from the Canaries to London. It’s about 40km from Wexford town along the south coast, and is close to Hook lighthouse and Duncannon beach, a popular kite-surfing destination.
