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.
