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.

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).

Miles of pristine sandy shoreline to enjoy. Plenty of room for fun with the family or move a little further to have a little quieter time. For walkers or runners you can choose between beach or forest track to explore. Beautiful on warm summer day but also very enjoyable in winter. Lifeguard available at times in summer.

The Sandy beach at Curracloe, Co. Wexford is a fine sand. Go to the right about 4.2km around the raven point and you can see Wexford town. Go left over 5km and you will end up in Blackwater.

As an Irish man ive been in and around many beaches throughout Ireland and wasn't usually impressed so when my partner said Curracloe beach is supposed to be one of... More

We had a visit to this beach on a windy, showery, but sunny day. The sand wad white and very soft, I would like to visit here on a warm sunny day. Good cafe and arcade.

I couldn't believe how lovely this beach is. Long strech of sand, dunnes, toilets, a small cafe nearby, surf school...what else do you want? My boys loved it so much I have to go back soon.

This is a beach we return to every summer. It seems to go on forever in both directions, the water is clean with no dangerous tides and there is loads of room for all sorts of beach games. There are huge dunes to explore as well as good parking facilities. It is hard to beat eating sandy chips on this... More

Great beach to visit at any time of the year and any time of the day! This beach is 11km long so even on sunny days you will always find a spot for yourself. It is very popular for walking and you can also access the Raven Point nature reserve which is a forest towards the end of the beach.... More

The location of the opening scene to 'Saving Private Ryan'. Blue flag for years. No litter. Sunny south east. Great for a walk at any time of the year.
