A beautiful clean fresh sandy beach . When we visited it was deserted apart from a horse and rider . A lovely refreshing breeze and you can walk for miles. Great facilities. Toilets cafe etc. Brilliant place for families for a day at the seaside. Will be back . A great beach to visit any time of the year!!

On a quiet day this beach can be deserted and is just stunning. It's unlike most Irish beaches in that there is actual sand and no stones! There's not much in terms of shops in the area so go there well prepared.

This is a beautiful beach, familiar to many as a well known film location. But there is much more to it than that. Beautiful views. A great beach and lovely forest

We visited this beach everyday of our holiday. Beautiful clean water, endless golden sand, very well supervised by lifeguards and though I noticed very little littering, it was tidied by someone each day (possibly volunteers). There is a big car park and a shop, picnic tables, a surf cafe and the "Shack", a surf shop renting boards, wet suits etc.... More

The beach is long and has 3 entrances, each with a car park. The Cullentons Gap enterance is beside the Raven nature reserve and forest. The kids love walking through the forest before cutting across to the beach and walking back beside the sea. Toilets are available at the Whites Gap and Ballineskar entrances. From each entrance is a wooden... More

Spent a beautiful day late summer day there. What a fantastic country we have with such gems..the beach and forest here need to be taken as one..absolutely beautiful. The toilets in the Car park the Wexford county council should be ashamed of! Also the dirty people whom walk their dogs and turn a blind eye to them dumping despite the... More
