If there is such a thing as a typical Wexford beach then Morriscastle is it. A long stretch of soft sand, soft water and good facilities make this an attractive location for families and children to swim and play.

A timber boardwalk leads you onto the beach , but then runs into the soft sand which makes it manageable for buggies but not wheelchairs. On the beach there is plenty of room, but it is a bit exposed and some kind of shelter is advisable. You are into and out of your depth fairly quickly so be careful. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months. As for nearly all of this coastline you will be swimming in dark, soft water. It was nice and calm when we visited and you can easily go for a good swim alongside the shoreline.

Facilities at Morriscastle are good. The large car park has good toilets and there is a shop and restaurant nearby. The beach has both the Blue Flag and Green Coast awards ..


From Courtown take the R742 for Kilmuckridge. In the centre of the town you will see a left turn signposted Morriscastle which will bring you to the car park.
