Forlorn Point, Kilmore Quay


Forlorn Point is an unusual headland near Kilmore Quay in South County Wexford.

The small headland may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need a desolate, unusual or remote coastal location. Though located in Kilmore Quay, the barren, rocky and low-lying headland feels more remote and desolate due to its looks and geography. This is especially true when looking out towards the ocean. The craggy, mishapen headland seems to disappear as it reaches out into the sea.

The headland is mostly submerged during high tide, and only the conctrete pathway and the grassy island at the end of the headland is visible. During low tides, more of the dark rocks of the headland are visible.
