The dunes are currently the subject of an active conservation policy by Wexford County Council ensuring that this marvellous amenity and the plant and wildlife it contains, will be preserved for future generations. A nature trail runs through the dunes and continues for 5 km to Raven Point, passing through the beautiful peninsula which constitutes Raven Nature Reserve. « less

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

The beach was fantastic so much so we decided to even have a late night walk along the beach to see it!!! It was so peaceful!!! And we hit the jackpot with the weather but I think it would be beautiful no matter what. No light pollution from the town areas adds to the beauty!! :D

I see that the only poor review for Curracloe Beach complains about the lack of facilities at it, for me this is its greatest feature, Winning Post serves tea and coffee and snacks and has a few video machines etc, and has a surfing school, but apart from that, all you get here is a clean, sandy, beautiful beach, and...

Long, clean and uncrowded when we were there, even though the weather was beautiful (August 2013). Water seemed clean. Really enjoyed swimming and sunbathing there.

Fantastic beach, we were lucky and had sunshine, the arcade there is a little run down, but ok to get a ice cream and cold drink, we'll worth a visit if your in the area!
