“Nice spot to walk the dog or take the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Ballyholme beach is or can be a very different place depending on the tides, by saying that I mean it can be either clean or very unclean. I walk my dog there every week and its a beautiful place to walk along and think, Its nice to get a good bit of weather and see everyone enjoying themselves mostly at the Ballymacormick end of the beach at the car park. Yet again a nice place to visit depending on the weather.

“Good for a Nice Walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I wouoldn't go swimming here but if you are after a nice walk along the shore, then this is as good a place as any - the beach leads onto some National Trust shore property - I think it's called Ballymacormic Point, If you are luck and it's the right time of year you can see some seals on the rocks.

A very enjoyable walk along the beach and path to Groomsport village. It is a pity about dog fouling!

“This beach needs a tidy up!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Such a lovely location and what are the council doing to market a good product? Not a lot! Lots of rubbish and dog poo. A few swings and nothing else to entertain kids.

Thank God I'm off to a greek beach soon!

A fun beach for walking and looking for holey stones. If only the sun came out more often!
