UK and Ireland Dog Friendly Beaches

We have researched beaches to see if they are dog friendly. We feel that for a dog owner a great day out at the seaside is about being able to bring along their best friend.

All our beach pages have a colour coded dog. GREEN indicates dogs are allowed, RED dogs not allowed and AMBER is that the beach has restrictions. Typically restrictions are during the summer months of Easter to October. Here we list by region all UK beaches that allow dogs all year round or with some restrictions.
