Curracloe Beach is a regular holder of the Blue Flag Beach status. 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.

One of the best beaches in area (not secluded and on your own) , but great for some wind and playing in waves. Kids will love the big dune and good car park and cafe next to it. A must see if in South Wexford.

Curracloe is on of Ireland's nicest beaches. Best enjoyed in the evening when the crowd have started to head home for tea ! From about 6pm on a sunny evening, there will be lots of space and the sun is still hitting the strand. The monster sand-dunes are always a hit with the kids ! Decent facilities for refreshments and... More

Very clean beach with beautiful sand dunes. Ample parking in the winter but can be a little bit crowded during the summer months, especially on warmer days. There is a beautiful walk through the forest the runs along side too.

I only went here because apparently it was used in the filming of "Saving Private Ryan", but once you arrive you'll soon realise that it's more than a film set. Plenty of parking available on a weekday, although on Sundays it will be packed. An old fashioned shop selling seaside equipment is situated next to the car park and the... More

This is one of the longest & best beaches in the South East. The beach is very long & the sand is soft & golden. It's fairly flat for a good deal of the way so makes for great walks. It's also very suitable for family picnics & days by the sea. We saw some local young people checking for... More

This is an amazing beach. White sandy beach at least 11km long. Even on a busy day you can find space. Curracloe is the busiest part with the largest car park and only shop. There are lots of sand dunes for more privacy if required. There is a nice wooded walk about 1k left of curracloe (the raven).
