The Warren is a small sandy rural beach backed by dunes and situated at the mouth of the Roscarbery River. The Rosscarbery Estuary is a sea inlet fed by small rivers from the north and north-west.

At the southern end of the beach is a harbour wall which protects the entrance to the rivermouth. A few small boats still fish from here.

The area around the beach has been designated as a Natural Heritage Area and wildlife abounds
