Ardmore is one of Waterford’s more popular holiday resorts and its beach is ideal for families and children. Located right at the edge of the town this is a good stretch of sheltered, soft sand, with clear waters which are great for kids to splash and play in. The water here feels fresh and is clear to swim in.
Even when the tide is in the water doesn’t get too deep and lifeguards are on duty during the summer. The beach itself is quite sheltered with most people congregating near the town end. So if you want some peace and quiet you just need to walk a few hundred metres.
Ardmore is a lively and safe family beach, busy in the summer and on a good day you might even be entertained by a bagpipe player.
There is a decent sized car park behind the beach and basic toilets there as well
Blue Flag beach
From Dungarvan take the R25 for Youghal. There are various left turns signposted Ardmore off this road. The beach is right at the edge of the town.
