Booley Bay is a sheltered beach on the Hook Peninsula in County Wexford, Ireland.
The beach may be a good filming location for scenes that need an isolated beach in an undeveloped location. The sandy beach is surrounded by cliffs. While standing on the sheltered beach, no civilisation can be seen in any direction, which gives the location a feeling of complete seclusion. Exposed rocks rise at both edges of the beach and may give the location some visual variety.
The beach has a Green Coast Award for having a high standard of water quality and environmental protection. The location is on the Hook Peninsula, an area of striking geography and rich history. Dollar Bay Beach is a similar beach just 500m away. Both locations have a similar character, but Booley Bay is slightly deeper, and during low tides, it is also slightly longer.
Parking: parking along the side of the beach road fits ~20 cars.
