Curracloe Beach

Curracloe Beach is a captivating spot of untouched beauty located along the Irish coast. Stretching from Raven Point to Ballyconigar, there’s so much to see here.

Curracloe, known for its alluring dunes, is a place for both adventure and rest. The beach is protected by the dunes, which also offer a distinctive ecology to discover and a sense of remoteness.

In addition to its natural beauty, Curracloe Beach is well-known for serving as the backdrop for the iconic World War II landing sequences in the motion picture “Saving Private Ryan.” Wexford locals even starred as extras in these scenes!
