Ireland Blue Flag Beaches 2016
The Blue Flag award is a prestigious, international award scheme that aims to provide an assurance to tourists that a beach has met a minimum standard. To collect a Blue Flag a beach must achieve the highest quality in water, facilities, safety, environmental education and management.
Below you will see the regions within Ireland that have beaches with a Blue Flag status. Blue Flag beaches are also represented on our interactive coast maps as a blue beach marker rather than the normal green beach marker.
