Portmarnock Beach, Portmarnock

4.6
#1 of 12 in Beaches in Province of Leinster
Beach Nature / Park
Kick off your shoes at Portmarnock Beach, a narrow beach with notably smooth sand and an active atmosphere. A path along the beach is a favorite for walkers, cyclers, and roller skaters. If you would rather be in the water, try your hand at wind or kite surfing. When the weather gets hot, look for the small shops with ice cream to soothe your cravings. Aviation buffs will appreciate that this was also the starting point for two important flights: one completed a trip around the world in 1930, and the other was the first to complete a solo trip around the world. Use our Portmarnock trip itinerary planner to add Portmarnock Beach and other attractions to your Portmarnock vacation plans.

  • Beautiful clean beach, have visited many times. Finish off with some chowder in sands hotel just across the road  more »
  • Beautiful golden sandy beach with fab views of Lambay Island and Irelands Eye. Lovely views of Howth and Malahide also in the distance  more »
  • 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.  more »
