The beach which can only be reached from the coast road by car or cycle is wonderful natural amenity. In any other European country it would be surrounded with hotels but Brittas bay is unique as it has no buildings except parking areas and some small services for eating and wc. etc.. The beach can be very busy in mid... More

Used to bring our kids from Dublin for picnic and whole day. Nowhere better especially in sunny weather. Sea bathing safe for children and dunes to play in. No tacky shops, just one for ice creams! Good car parking.

beautiful beach! Tends to get crowded in summer! Better in shoulder seasons! Parking costs a few euro but if you're there for more than a few hours, worth it! Can be windy, thus cold with shelter in the sand dunes!

I have visited Brittas Bay beach a few times now and it is beautiful. Gorgeous sandy beach. No amusements and no shops. There is one really lovely cafe just along the road near the beach which serves delicious food if your feeling peckish. Your best bet is to pack a picnic in the summer months. I love the beach anyway... More

My experience of Brittas Bay is long days on a sandy beach with picnics or barbies and lots of swimming with the children. This was a time many years ago when we took the children down from Dublin for a day trip or stayed a week in a wonderful serviced van on the beach area. The field had showers and... More

Brittas Bay has the most beautiful beach, not far from Wicklow and Arklow. We spend the entire summer there in a mobile home. When the sun shines there is no place like it.

A great beach for sunny days and for walking when not so sunny. The best spot is the south beach but avoid the car park and park at the pull in beyond this on the road heading towards Arklow. Walk down to the beach though the dunes on a wooden boardwalk. This brings you out at the very southern end... More

Brittas Bay seems to shut all the car parks, etc at the end of September but at the southern end, there is a place to park about a dozen cars and then a 50m walk through to the beach. On a sunny October day, it was almost deserted. A lovely place for a walk, sunbathe and to collect pebbles.
