Without a shadow of a doubt this is by far up there with the best beaches in Ireland. Fabulous scenery , lovely walks and seems a big hit with tourists

Arrived to find the car park was 4euro, not a bother as this is right beside the beach. Beach was very clean, and not to busy, week day. Shop at the beach is a little pricy, but to be expected. Overall nice walk with the family.

A beautiful beach which was spoiled by walking in dog pooh. Lots of people walking dogs but why can they not clean up after them? Great for a long walk. Lifeguards on duty for those who wish to swim.

Water was freezing but my kids had a ball! Lovely clean beach - would go back! The burger bar is very overpriced 5 euro for a chicken fillet burger - sorry 'processed frozen chicken' - you would buy four for a pound in any supermarket🍔 - will take own food the next time lol!!!

We have stayed at Brittas Bay for the last two years and it is beautiful! The beach is great, white sands with dunes and a lifeguard on duty during summer months.

We love visiting Brittas Bay especially to let the dog have a nice run. It can get crazy in the summer when the weather is good. So we try to get in and out early for our walk. You should also consider visiting nearby bay cafe for some lovely food and drinks.

Unlike the west coast, really sandy beaches are rare on the Irish Sea. And the concept of charging for parking at a beach is a surprise to people used to the Wild Atlantic Way. It's a huge area of dunes and sand though, with a pub not far away. On the West coast the pub is built actually on the... More

If you like a quiet beach with a wide expanse of sand, a few rock pools, interesting dunes to explore and a few cafes nearby Brittas Bay is perfect for you.
