Duncannon Beach is located in the south west of County Wexford, just outside the fishing village of Duncannon. It is a mile long golden beach, which hosts the Sand Sculpting Festival annually.
Duncannon Beach is a designated bathing area of approximately a mile long. There are great views from the beach of Hook Head and, across the river, the Waterford coastline. Just a short stroll from the beach is Duncannon Fort. There is parking at the water's edge with reserved disabled parking available too. There are also male and female toilets open all year round.
