We really enjoyed a trip to this beach - plenty of sand to walk along and cars can be driven onto it too, with pubs and shops near by. Busy in summer though, so not somewhere to come if you want a secluded/quiet walk.

One of the few beaches in Ireland where you are allowed to drive and park on the beach! Lovely beach, lots to do around this area, short drive away from Loftus Hall and Hook Head Lighthouse

This is a beautiful beach, with lovely clean water. Between the tractor sweeping and people with blue bags, it is well-maintained. The beach is on a kind of shelf, which drops off into Waterford Bay. So the water isn't too deep off the beach, but becomes deep enough for large boats. It is popular for kite surfing (but not the... More

Was here a few weeks ago, and despite being a beautiful long beach it feels like the community has just let it go. First there was loads of bit of glass on the beach, not that smoothed by the sea type but the sharp dangerous type. Second young lads driving up and down the beach doing wheel spins and generally...

The apartment we were staying in was overlooking the beach.When the tide was out there was a lovely clean sandy stretch to walk along.Dont go here if you are afraid of dogs as there are generally lots of dogs on the beach.

You can drive on to the beach, its spotless and has plenty of room so you wont get crowded. The children where safe and plenty of ice cream from the local seller. The Strand Tavern is also facing the beach which serves award winning food at the price without ripping you off.

The beach has lovely soft sand and is very clean with very little seaweed. There is a small shop which sells buckets and spades as well as drinks and ice creams. The water was a very long way away when we were there which was ok but meant that we didn't spend a lot of time together as one of... More
