Curracloe Beach

Features

Curracloe Beach is a long, white sandy beach and is one of County Wexford’s best beaches.

Curracloe may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need a beautiful beach that adds scale and production value. It is arguably the best beach in County Wexford and among the best beaches in the whole of Ireland. The beach is long, wide, and has soft golden white sand. The rear of the beach is covered by extensive dune systems that cuts it off from the outside world and adds visual interest to the location.

The beach has been awarded a Blue Flag, meaning that the waters around the area follow the strictest standards for quality and environmental protection. It is part of one of the longest stretches of beach in Ireland. If Cullentons Gap and Ballinsker beach are included, the sand stretches for 11km, from Raven Point to Blackwater.

Because of its beauty, unobscured vistas, and great length, Curracloe beach makes an ideal film location. It’s no suprise then that it has been used in large period films such as Saving Private Ryan and Brooklyn.
