Visitor Reviews

Visitor reviews highlight that the beach is beautiful with plenty of parking, facilities like public toilets and food trucks, and a lifeguard on duty, making it a great day trip from Dublin. However, visitors complain about having to pay for parking and the cleanliness of the toilets. It is recommended to bring your own water as there are no shops or cafes around.
