Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Leinster / County Wexford / Curracloe / Curracloe Beach
Fringed by pine forests and grassy sand dunes, Curracloe Beach features soft white sand lapped by a gentle surf. Locals flock to this Blue Flag-rated beach on sunny days, but thanks to its vastness, you won't have trouble finding a quiet spot just for yourself. A nature trail runs through the neighboring nature reserve, while the shacks serving snacks, selling sun cream, and renting bodyboards are available at the several access points. Thanks to its resemblance to Omaha Beach, the strand was featured in the opening scene of Spielberg's blockbuster movie "Saving Private Ryan." A visit to Curracloe Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Curracloe travel planner to plot your vacation.
Curracloe Beach reviews
We've walked the Ravens point walk twice and it's a wonderful walk .The first half is from the beach carpark parallel with the beach and out to the point and then back by the beach if the sand isn't.... more »
Lovely sandy beach. Whether you like to swim, lie in the sun or take a long walk along the beach, this is a great place. You can walk for miles and come to next beach up, which is Ballinesker, where..... more »
Beautiful place had to give 4 stars over the drivers mainly from Dublin speeding on the roads, they cant seem to drive normally and are always in a rush. We walked from Wexford town and almost got run over 5 or 6 times because people cant slow down. A path would be great and make things much safer. The beach is amazing and the people are very friendly bar the Dubs and I'm a Dub (I'm ashamed) ...
Love this beach front. Plenty of room for the kids to do what kids do. Try to dig to Australia etc. Seals are easy to spot if you like wildlife and the water is perfect for swimming. Why do you think they had Saving Private Ryan here? Will always visit this place.
