The local townsfolk of Duncannon need to get their heads together and sort out the problem of pollution and general cleanliness on Duncannon Beach. It is a shame to see what could be a hugely popular attraction, be neglected in this fashion. If other small settlements with limited resources can look after their assets and encourage tourists to spend their... More

Duncannon strand has had blue flag status, but because of poor planning and the lack of investment by Wexford county council, it is now reduced to a non swimming beach. It is so polluted that there will be a total swimming ban this summer. As well as that, it is believed that no improvement will be implemented over the next... More

Duncannon is a little place which is unspoilt by tourism but needs more bins as only 2 in village! The Beach was nice but wasn't cleaned and always full of cars which I didn't like, no Dog mess bins anywhere so people just covered over :-(. The lovely village is a bit disappointing but has great potential should they sort... More

I have been visiting the area for over 20 years and believe that duncannon has great potential, but lazy tourism operates here. The long beach is potentially great but is hardly ever cleaned and the same can be said of the other beaches in the area. The potential for kite surfing etc is great but on any suitable day you...

Excellent, gently shelving beach with easy access to let you bring your car onto the beach. On the day we visited, the sun was shining and the sands were very clean. Lovely way to spend a few hours.

We revisited this lovely village recently and had a great break. The beach is fab - huge and great for a lovely evening stroll, with Hook Lighthouse flashing its light regularly in the distance. As some other reviews have mentioned, cars are allowed onto the beach here, but we didn't find this a problem during our visit; in fact it... More

A beautiful small stretch of coast nestled on the perimeter of the small village Duncannon. Scenery wise Duncannon is lovely but after that it does not have much to offer. We visited during July, there was absolutely no entertainment at night in the villages two pubs, very very quite town. The village shops are over priced and very dated. For... More
