When you know it's time to hit the beach in Wicklow /Dublin , you know that you have to go to Brittas Bay. I have been going to this beach ever since I was a child, we once stayed in a holiday village in Brittas Bay and I can still remember waking up to the sun shining in the window... More

Stunning beach when you get the weather. It's difficult to get to without a car but it's worth the effort. It's a large beach with loads of sand banks for the kids to play in. Definitely pack a picnic as its a bit of a walk back to the sho.

Such a beautiful beach, pristine sand, fabulous panoramic vista and loads of space, no matter how busy it gets in summer. My favourite times to visit are moonlit nights (absolutely unbelievably stunning skies), winter sunshine walks and of course summertime! Every time is... More

Have visited Brittas bay many times over the years. With small children and with teenagers. Lovely sandy beach . Also a great place in the winter for a brisk walk to blow the cobwebs away. Clean beach good sand clear sea. No rubbish. Small fee for parking but worth the money.

This is a wonderful amenity, winter and summer, the Public Car Parks are open for the summer months, there is a small fee for parking which goes towards keeping the beach as clean as possible, however, visitors should be more aware of the hazards of leaving their rubbish behind, and despite ample rubbish bins and skips, a small number of...
