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

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.

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).

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.

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.
