Wicklow Bathing Water Is Excellent Quality In latest Report

Water quality results for bathing areas and beaches in Co. Wicklow.

Water quality results for bathing areas and beaches in Co. Wicklow.

Wicklow County Council monitors bathing areas along its coastline during the bathing season, which runs from 1 June to 15 September each year.

There are six bathing waters identified under the Bathing Water Regulations 2008. These are Bray South Promenade, Greystones South Beach, Silver Strand, Brittas Bay North Beach, Brittas South Beach and Clogga Beach. The Council also monitors six other bathing waters (termed 'non-identified bathing waters') in the county: South of Bray Harbour, Kilcoole Beach, The Murrough Wicklow, Wicklow Harbour Bathing Area, Wicklow Harbour Lifeboat Area and Arklow South Beach.

On occasion, warning notices may be issued advising against bathing at bathing waters where the local authority, in consultation with the Health Service Executive, has reason to believe that the water quality may be insufficient and present an increased risk to bathers health. Such notices will be published here and on the EPA beaches website in the case of the six identified bathing waters.
