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...

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.
