CURRACLOE BEACH, CO WEXFORD

Curracloe Beach is located 10km north east of Wexford town and approximately 1km west of the village of Curracloe, County Wexford.

Curracloe's white sandy beach stretches from Raven Point to Ballyconigar near Blackwater. It is a particularly safe area for bathing, however please help by observing the 'life guard on duty' signs when bathing.

Curracloe beach has received the International Blue Flag award for 2017.

It is one of the cleanest beaches on the Irish coast and is best known for having featured in the Second World War themed motion picture ‘Saving Private Ryan.’

The beautiful Curracloe Beach is only a 15-minute drive from Wexford town and is a regular holder of the Blue Flag Beach status.

The dunes are the subject of an active conservation policy by Wexford County Council ensuring that this spectacular amenity and the plant and wildlife it contains, will be preserved for 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.

The Raven Nature Reserve is located at Raven Point on the north side of Wexford. Raven Point is planted with a forest of pine and other evergreen trees. It is also a sanctuary for birds such as geese and wildlife especially the red squirrel. A looped walk of the area goes to the tip of the Raven Point spit through the wood and back again via the beach.

Any visit to Wexford is not complete without a stroll along this sunny south east coastline. It’s a wonderful place to visit for a day and offers long walks and one of Ireland best white sandy beaches.
