Attraction Information

Also known as the Velvet Strand, Portmarnock Beach in the Republic of Ireland stretches out for a whopping 3 miles, so little ones will have plenty of space to run around. 

There’s a lifeguarding service here, so it’s a great place for the kids to go for a paddle in the sea, definitely don’t forget to bring along the swimming costumes! Bring along the bucket and spade too, because the best way for water babies to dry off at the beach is by making awesome sandcastles. 

  • Huge stretch of sandy beach 
  • Great for swimming 
  • Lifeguarding service
