Fantastic beach with sand dunes as far as the eye can see, one of those places that is worth visiting even on a cold Winters day.

I visit Brittas Bay as often as possible. Great place to swim from April to October. Walk all year. Good safe parking and kept clean most of the year. Good pub food available nearby, stables within a few miles drive.

Magic any morning or summer evening. A fantastic natural resource/ammenity I get out in all seasons, sometimes its too tough but its always beautiful. Any real wind inland off the coast is serious wind on Brittas, under 10c any wind off the sea can rip the heat out of a body that isn't well dressed for the weather - not... More

Only stopped for a short while. Great looking beach and amazing for a walk. Probably wouldn't have gone in the water considering how cold it was, despite being mid-day in June ...

If you find yourself around Wicklow on a sunny and not too windy day, then the Brittas Bay is a nice beach to take a walk or build a sand castle with your children. Also, the one souvenir I brought from Ireland was the blackest stone I have ever seen.

It's a nice beach, but it's kinda hard to enjoy it in Irish weather. Even though it's sunny Wicklow, water is still cold, so it's just hard to have fun there.

beach was lovely, the only thing letting it down was the on site toilets, they were disgusting putting it nicely and I overheard a few other people commenting on this also.

Following direction to the beach it felt like I was driving further than I imagined. Eventually I saw the sign posts. First impressions are delayed till you get past the car park, the €4 fee per car and complementary rubbish bag. I didn't appreciate the latter until I approached the beach and saw lovely white clean sand free of peoples... More

after travelling down a rather bad twisting road we came to Brittas Bay & it was so worth it. An absolute brilliant beach , sandy tho stoney as you got nearer the water. Didn't put us off, we spent day there. Toilet block also there which is important for kids
