“Childhood memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Curracloe is one of the nicest beaches in Ireland and maybe in the world. I have been many times but this time I had the pleasure of helping a friend whose son was taking part in a week full of activities on the beach. There was nothing like that when I was a child. I went and visited the sand dunes my sisters and I would roll down constantly. We camped there in an old army tent and my mam would cook proper dinners every day we were there, no McDonalds and we would not want them.
It was just beach and sand dunes every day and we were happy. The boardwalk still there and so nice to see it not commercialised. Its a lovely sandy beach and worth a visit.

“Beautiful clean golden beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Beach was spotless, no cars on it and was gorgeous. Miles and miles of golden sand - we'd some great walks along the beach from Ballinesker right down to Curracloe itself.
