Courtown Beach

Gorey, Wexford

A fine sand beach with extensive coastal protection along the boundary between the dunes/woodland and the beach itself. The beach is relatively narrow around the main access points, but widens further north. Coastal erosion has depleted the beach.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Courtown) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
