Courtown has fond memories for so many visitors to Wexford over the years. With plenty of fun and amusements, this is a great day out for young and old for building sandcastles during the summer months. Courtown North Beach is popular with families swimming and making sandcastles during the day, it’s a peaceful spot for a walk as the sun sets.
Just below the pier in Courtown lies the shorter beach, known as Courtown South. This is where you go if you want to read your book away from the squeals of children! It’s not suitable for swimming, making it an ideal spot for a moment away from the madness.
By the way, Courtown is home to Seal Rescue Ireland. It’s dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick, injured and orphaned seals from across the coast of Ireland. It’s a fantastic place and the kids will love seeing the seals!
Nearest walk: Courtown Woods, ideal for picnics, bluebells, wild garlic
If it’s raining: Pirates Cove, Kia Ora Mini Farm
Good to know: At the beach there is a large car park so you can park up and enjoy the day!
