Ballymoney North Beach


Ballymoney North Beach is a popular sandy beach near Gorey, in north-east County Wexford.

The beautiful, wide, and crescent shaped sandy beach is very popular with locals and tourists. As a film location, it may be ideal for scenes that need a touristy or crowded beach. But due to its looks, shape and quality, when it’s not busy, the area is perfect as a serene and secluded coastal location.

The location is popular with families and swimmers and is staffed by a lifeguard in summer. The beach has sand that is of medium to fine quality, but small stones may wash up on the beach, particularly after storms.

The beach connects to Ballymoney South Beach. Both can be reached by the same car park. The two beaches are connected by a paved pathway that crosses behind the rocks that separate them. Previously this location had a blue flag award, which is given to beaches that have passed the strictest standards of water quality and environmental protection.
