Clone Beach is a short, sandy and stoney beach in north-east County Wexford.
The small beach may be a useful filming location for scenes that need a beach with character. The rugged dunes to the rear of the beach and the winding inlet that cuts across it give the beach an unusual charm. And although it’s fairly short, the beach is unusually wide. At around 100m at its widest, the beach is one of the widest in Wexford.
The beach is sandy, but is often littered with stones. The beach can be reached by a winding hedgerow concealed path.
It is connected to Kilgorman Strand to the south. The two beaches are technically one, but have different widths, are separated by an inlet, and have their own entrances. Coastal Road Clone overlooks this location.
Also known as Clones beach, Castletown beach and Clone strand.
