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..

Brittas Bay is one of the most spectacular beaches on the east coast of Ireland, only a 40 minute drive from Dublin. Whilst it can be quite windy (if an east wind is blowing), the sand is fine and golden, and there are plenty of sand dunes and other areas to take cover. Brittas Bay Beach is divided into the...

When you travel down the coast from Dublin the beaches can be very rocky but then you get to Brittas Bay and you think you are in the Bahamas. Beautiful beach walks - sand dunes and safe, clean water to swim. Great for families

A brisk walk certainly blows the cobwebs away! Good way to build up an appetite or walk off the enormous breakfast at druids glen hotel!

We stopped here by accident on our way to Arklow and glad we did. There is a carpark - which was closed but there was a layby to park on with access to the beach. The beach was busy for February and we enjoyed a nice walk along the long stretch of sandy beach bounded by sand dunes. I imagine... More

Beautiful spot to visit during the summer. Walks along the beach, running down the sand dunes - What more can you want?! Beware - The main beach on sunny days and bank holidays can be very crowded!
