  • Stretching for over 5 kilometres along the south Wexford coast is Ballyteige Burrow. Ideal for nature lovers and those looking for a long, bracing walk away from the crowds.

    The beach begins just west of the harbour at Kilmore Quay. This end of the beach has various names such as Kilmore beach, Crossfarnoge Bay and Inish Bay. For most, Ballyteige Burrow is considered the wilder, western end of this long curve of beach.

    Ballyteige Burrow is an internationally important coastal habitat consisting of an impressive shingle-based dune system, meadows and wetland beyond. The protected dunes are home to several rare insect and plant species including orchids and the only population of Scrambled-egg Lichen in Ireland.

    Reaching a height of around 15 metres above the beach the views from the dunes take in much of the surrounding countryside and coast. The Saltee Islands are clearly visible along with the estuary behind the beach.
