The Wexford Coastal Path

An Sli Charman, Wexford County Council
If you are an energetic walker and would also like a chance to see most of the beaches mentioned in our beach guide, why not follow An Sli Charman which takes in most of them. An Sli Charman, the Wexford Coastal Path, was established in 1993 by Wexford County Council.

An Sli (The path) extends for 221 kilometres from Kilmichael point in the North East corner of County Wexford to Ballyhack, a picturesque village in the South West of our county. Along the way you will encounter sandy beaches, eroding clay cliffs, durable rocky headlands, areas of exceptional natural beauty and interest, historic towns and monuments.

Sli Charman is indicated along the path by signs bearing the "Man on Water" symbol. Information signs at various points along the path carry maps of the area and describe the main points of interest along that section of the walk.

Leading off over the headland at Kilmicheal Point, An Sli crosses Clones Strand, around the foot of Tara Hill and along the North Strand at Courtown. The high, soft claycliffs which first appear at Ardamine are a continous feature of the walk southwards through Cahore Point and Blackwater head to Ballinesker.

WARNING: Sli Charman brings you as close as possible to the shoreline. You may have to walk along steeped, narrow paths, over rocks, across streams, over stiles, along narrow streches of shoreline. Always have respect for the power of nature - rocks may shift, streams may flow in spate, sea waves may surge unexpectedly.
