Brittas Bay

What a beautiful beach. A really well worth walk. The only downfall was you had to pay for parking which was steep at 4 euros.

Spent a week in Brittas Bay this year. Traveled with three young kids (2,4 & 7). The weather was poor (typical of Ireland though) but we got one great day to get to the beach. Drove down to the south car park. Was met by two men with no shirts operating a coin fed car barrier. Not the most appealing... More

We arrived here complaining as we had to pay FOUR EURO to park at the beach.What a rippoff!!!! The rain was POURING down and it was terribly windy. However, the sand dunes were so much fun that we have vowed to return if we ever get any good weather. The beach was empty cos most people would not be that... More

Within an hours drive from Dublin, this is one of the great beaches on the east coast of Ireland. Take a picnic and enjoy a family day at the beach. You will pay to park.

Went here today as it was lovely weather. The beach and water were beautiful but the facilities were a let down. The toilets looked like they weren't cleaned recently, no way of drying hands. The portions of chips weren't tasty if a bit on the small side. It appears the recession never got to Brittas Bay because at 50cent for... More

Lovely fine sand, well managed parking and life guards. Very shallow so great for families with young children. No so good for body boarding. Thoroughly recommend and will definitely go again.

This is undoubtedly one of Ireland's finest beaches. Very good for long walks on the lovely white sand. Although the day we were there it was very cut up by horses and the smell of the horse dung was not good. If dog owners have to clean up, then so should horse owners. They do leave a much larger deposit.... More

If they had the hot Mediterranean weather, Brittas would be besieged with tourists. Just as well. this is a lovely bay with proper fine sand. The Irish are so friendly and sturdy - swimming and walking their dogs despite the blustery wind and rain!!

This is one of the best sandy beaches in the country and one of the best known. It is very popular with visitors from South County Dublin and is now easier to get to since the new motorway has opened, Just watch out for the motorway exit for Brittas and Jack Whites. It is very busy at the weekends, especially... More
