Curracloe Beach - County Wexford

A huge stretch of sandy beach reaching from Raven Point to Ballyconigar near Blackwater.

Curracloe Strand has three separate access points along its length and the sections of the beach are named after these. From north to south there is Ballinesker, White Gap and Culletons Gap. These all have wooden boardwalks running from car parks down to the beach with Ballinesker accessible in a wheelchair.

Regularly awarded Blue Flag status you can rely on there being plenty of facilities on and off the beach.

Curracloe beach was used in the filming of the D-Day landings scenes of the 1997 film, Saving Private Ryan.
