As good as anywhere in the sunny southeast it has a safe beach. Long picturesque walks. Hotel along side. Lifeguards in the summer. Near the new greenway between Dungarvan and Waterford. A nice place to stop for a picnic.

Clean and beautiful beach during the quieter months of the year. Can be a little hectic during the nice weather, which takes away from the natural beauty of this place. Great for swimming with minimal pebbles etc. Love going for a walk in the evenings here.

This is a beautiful beach on the Atlantic coast. In the summer months you could be anywhere in the world, as the beach really fills up. The ocean however is freezing, There's also a couple of little shops selling food and ice creams. Well worth a visit.
