On the Hook Peninsula visitors will find a beach to suit all activities.

Family Beaches

Families can find safe refuge for a traditional fun day by the sea at Grange, Baginbun, Sandeel or Ducannon where a lifeguard is on duty during the summer season (lifeguard flags are displayed when on duty). A beach wheelchair is also available on the beach and can be booked through the Wexford County Council website.

Looking To Escape

If you are holidaying to escape head for Dollar, Booley or Boyces Bay where you can take in the beautiful rural coastal seascapes on these quite secluded beaches, the gentle crashing of waves is the only sound to interrupt your thoughts.

Looking For Adventure


For those with a more adventurous spirit Carnivan is one of Wexford County’s best surfing beaches, Freedom surf school will make the trip from their home in Tramore to give lessons and Carnivan is also the location of the peninsula’s annual Hooked’n’Tagged beach rugby tournament.

Kite Surfing

On a windy day head to Duncannon beach to witness its skyline filled with the spectacular site of experienced kitesurfers flying over the water; lessons are available for novices from the renowned Hooked Kite Surfing school.
