Fantastic long sandy beach. Spent a week in a cottage by the beach. Ballinesker car park is quieter than White Gap. Children (16 and 9) had a great time at the Surf School.

The beach is beautiful but the toilet facilities let it down very badly. We arrived about 5pm on one of the warmest days (7th August) this year and the three toilets were disgusting and no longer functional presumably because it had been a busy day.They were also a long way from the beach. I would have expected a state of... More

I have been visiting this beach since I was a child. It is simply beautiful. It tends not to be overcrowded like many other beaches and it's spotlessly clean. Perfect on a windy day in October or a sunny day in July.

Lovely and clean love going here when on holidays in Wexford. The shop and arcade area could do with a face lift though.

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!
