Lovely clean beach. much bigger at low tide as well. Lots of places to park and not at all crowded. We had a nice walk and enjoyed the views of the islands in the distance. Nice area away from the beach as well.

I envy the people lucky enough to live near here and have this amazing beach on their doorstep. You can walk along the shore for miles and the views on a clear day are spectacular. Well worth a visit.

Wow! What a beautiful beach! My two sons loved exploring and running along this beach. So safe and clean. The views unbelievable and the sea air tired my sons out!

What can you say about portmarnock beach, but when the weather is good it beats Spain and Portugal any time. And today was one of those days. Blue skies, sunshine and just fantastic.

Easy to get to, and a fun place to get a good look at the coast of Ireland. The tide was out, so we were able to walk out over a half of a mile. Very windy, but hey its Ireland.

Favourite beach in Dublin. This is an amazing beach to visit. Fantastic sand dunes. It's a fav from my childhood. Definitely worth a visit at any time of the year.
