The beach at Dunmore East is small, curved and well sheltered. It is divided by rocks into two, with a smaller section to the left. From the road there is a steep slipway descent to the main section, which is certainly not for wheelchairs. The tide comes right in here so do keep an eye on the times if you are looking for a beach to play on. When the tide is low there are rock pools for children to explore.
The water here is clear and fresh and lovely to swim in. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months.
Although it wasn’t signposted, there is a good sized car park to the left of the village (follow the signpost for the golf club) and this has a flat, zig zag pathway to the smaller section of the beach which is accessible.

There are public toilets nearby and an added feature is the attractive bar, with outdoor seating , which overlooks the beach.
From Tramore you take the R 675 for Waterford and just outside the town you take the R684/ R685 signposted for Dunmore. Stay on this road and just before you get to Dunmore there is a left turn signposted for the beach.
