Blackhall Strand & Kerragh Islands


Blackhall Strand and the Keeragh Islands are a quiet beach and a pair of islets in south County Wexford, Ireland.

The strand is considered isolated but is popular with families and walkers. It is sandy and surrounded by cliffs, some of which are rocky. There may be some tide pools between the cliffs at the edge of the beach.

The islets are located approximately 1.5km off the coast from the beach. The pair of islands can be seen from the beach, as well as from nearby Cullenstown Strand. The islands are surrounded by a treacherous rocky reef and were historically associated with frequent shipwrecks. Grounded ships were once so common on the islands, that in the 1800s the locals built a small house on one of the islands to shelter shipwrecked sailors. This building is now completely in ruins and its former walls of it are just visible from the air.
