Blackrock has three beaches consisting of the main beach at the south end of the village plus the Priest’s Beach and Ladies Beach which are more secluded but signposted to the north.

The centre of the village is right at the seafront. The retreating tide means you can enjoy the expansive strand when the tide is out and the Irish Sea when the tide is high.

What is just a glimmering line on the horizon at one point in the day will later be lapping the shoreline of the village following a 12 hour cycle.

While the tide has ebbed take advantage of the spans of walkway to explore the view of the village from another angle.
