Duncannon Beach is a popular sandy beach in Duncannon village, in south-west County Wexford.
The beach may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need a gorgeous beach in a picturesque seaside town, or for scenes that need easy access to a beautiful beach from other filming locations. The beach is pretty with golden sand. And the beach entrance is located on the Duncannon main street. A row of houses is built directly onto the first 100m of the beach. This means that the gorgeous beach and the charming village are visually intertwined and elevated by each other.
The area is also the site of an annual sand sculpting festival. This unusual event happens on the August bank holiday and has a variety of events, ending with an impressive competition of sand art on the beach itself.
Historic Duncannon Fort overlooks the beach.
Beach dimensions: ~1km long, width varies from 6m up to 20m, but is mostly ~12m.
Car park: fits around 20 cars and is right by the beach. Street parking is also available in the village.
