Crossfarnoge Beach is a sandy beach with dunes near Kilmore Quay, County Wexford, Ireland.
The sandy beach may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need a straightfoward but visually impactful beach or for coastal scenes that need grassy dunes. The beach is simple and sandy, with a curving shoreline that will have a visual impact on screen. When facing away from Kilmore Quay, there is nothing human-built in sight and while looking towards the village and harbour, at ground level the buildings are almost completely hidden by the grassy dunes. These large grassy dunes stretch the length of the beach and separate the sand from the rest of the countryside as well.
The dunes are a part of the Ballyteigue Burrow Nature Reserve and are rich in rare flora and fauna. The location lays just beside Kilmore Quay. The Saltee Islands can be seen offshore past the Forlorn Point.
Dimensions: The sand stretches for around 9km all the way until Cullenstown Stand, but Crossfarnoge Beach only occupies less than a tenth of this length. The beach is 70m at its widest. The dunes are between 200m and 250m wide.
Located just beside Kilmore Quay.
