We were lucky enough to spend the afternoon during a heatwave. The water was warm. Lovely soft sand. We parked on the side of the road and went over the dunes. It is easy to feel alone as the beach is so long it will never get crowded. A must see spot if you are driving in the south east.

Nice beach, too cold to swim in mind. Good for kids with amusement arcades and the like. A huge forrest to explore too, be careful of insects that bite do.

This is a long beach with 3 entrances known locally as Ballinsker/White Gap/Culletons Gap running north to south. It is a blue flag beach. Large car park with a shop and toilets. The sands are golden and the sea is so blue and the whole area is so clean. Lifeguards are on duty during summer months. A really beautiful beach... More

Fantastic beach with golden sands and beautiful blue sea. Shop facilities close by as well as bathroom facilities. Great walks and the nearby Raven Wood is a must!

What a fantastic beach for frollicing in the summer and long brisk walks all year round. The best beach in the sunny south east.

We saw this wonderful beach at its best in a beautiful early evening sunshine - a place not to miss if you are anywhere near.

I would say this is the best beach in Ireland. Featured in the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan too. A great walk which our dog also thoroughly enjoyed.

Have been a few times to Curracloe and the wide expanse of soft sandy beaches and wild sandunes is always very impressive.We went in April so its not warm enough to swim,but nice and fresh to walk along the empty gorgeous beach.There are no shops or restaurants here to spoil the coastline so make sure you bring a picnic if...

We did the loop walk from Ravenwood round to the beach. The paths are clearly marked and very easy to walk. The beach is amazing. The Dunes are wonderful. Really wonderful couple of hours
