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.

My favourite beach anywhere, winter and summer. None of the commercialism that you get at other beach resorts just unspoiled, beautiful miles of beach.

Rugged beauty.. Very little change from many many years ago.. Beautiful walks & strolls along a long stretch of beach.. There is a beach hut if you care to hire equipment for surfing & water activities and a cafe too..

We visited this beach from Enniscorthy. It is a long sandy beach , best for long walk and kids sand castle.. Availability of some food and icecream near car park compliments it..

Fabulous blue flag beach. Really clean. I love that it's not permitted to drive cars into it. The children had great fun in the sand dunes where I knew it was safe for them to play.
