Curracloe Beach is a regular holder of the Blue Flag Beach status. The dunes are currently the subject of an active conservation policy by Wexford County Council ensuring that this marvellous amenity and the plant and wildlife it contains, will be preserved for future generations. A nature trail runs through the dunes and continues for 5 km to Raven Point, passing through the beautiful peninsula which constitutes Raven Nature Reserve.

Beautiful expanse of soft sand. Gentle safe waters. Scenic dunes. Shame that people carelessly let them burn, ruining the habitat for many birds.Please do not bring barbecues to any beach and please take care and be responsible.

Lovely, huge beach that's great for walking and dog friendly, too! The water was a bit cold for us (we're from tropical Florida), but there were a few brave souls who seemed to enjoy the swimming!

An absolutely fantastic beach, truly beautiful. However, the car park and surrounding area was filthy. People can be such idiots the way the just throw rubbish around.

I'm not a beach/sea fan at all, but I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this beach. It's clean, has beautiful sand, easy parking, and somewhere to get some decent food after a swim.

Curracloe is easily the best beach in Ireland. It is always spotlessly clean and all the locals are very friendly and helpful
