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.

First impressions are delayed till you get past the car park, the €4 fee per car and complementary rubbish bag.

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

This beach has won awards and its plain to see why.The sand is so soft its hard to walk on.When you stand on the waters edge and the tide hits your feet and then leaves you sink about an inch.Its a beautiful big beach that must strech for a least 2 miles with car parking facilities costing 4 euro and...

Fortunately when I visited I had great weather... yes it does happen in Ireland... The beach is hidden by the sand dunes but once you make your way along the path you find yourself on a beautiful sandy beach. It's great that people are being so respectful of the beach..
