Pollshone is a smaller, less well known neighbour to the more popular Courtown. Some people like it for precisely that reason.
The beach here is small, curved and sheltered. The water is usually fairly calm and so it is good for those who want a decent swim. It is also well used by children with the beach often full of families from the nearby caravan park and others who prefer their beaches smaller and less crowded.
Facilities at Pollshone are basic. There is space for cars to park at the top of the hill before you descend to the beach, but you can’t park any closer. The beach is not wheelchair accessible and you will be lifting buggies for the last few yards across a rough path before you hit the sand.
Although Pollshone itself is small, when the tide is out you can walk back to nearby Ardamine and on to Courtown itself.
From Courtown take the R742 in the direction of Wexford. After a few kilometres watch out for a right turn signposted Pollshone. Park at the end of this road before the road narrows and drops toward the beach.
