More Information...

The beach in front of St Oliver Plunkett's Church in Blackrock is known as either Priest's beach or Ladies beach. Whilst the first name might be self-explanatory the second one is down to Victorian modesty. Along with building a large sea wall to protect against flooding here a section of wall was built across the beach so that ladies could bathe in privacy. Ladies beach is a pleasant stretch of sand which gently slopes into Dundalk Bay. Like Blackrock's other beach the tide does tend to go out rather a long way here - around 2 miles - so maybe not ideal if you fancy a dip.
