Wexford Beaches

Welcome to our Beaches

Wexford is blessed with long, clean and safe beaches that few counties in Ireland can rival, combine this with Ireland's best weather and you have a great combination. Just about the entire coast of Wexford is a series of long sandy beaches. Relative to the west coast of Ireland the waters around the Wexford coast are generally calm and safe for swimmers, while it is possible to surf off Courtown pier and on beaches such as Carnivan near Fethard on the Hook Peninsula for those of a more adventurous nature.
