Greystones’ South Beach Gets EPA Thumbs Up


It will come as little surprise to anyone who visits the place regularly, but Greystones’ South Beach has been given another gold star by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Having scored Excellent for 2014 and 2015 – and beyond – our great big sandpit scored top marks yet again for 2016.

Our neighbouring Bray South Promenade has made the jump from Good for 2014 and 2015 to Excellent this year, whilst Silver Strand maintained its step in the other direction in 2015, having, state EPA, ‘only just failed to meet Excellent due to impacts from frequent low levels of E.coli‘. 
With three quarters of Ireland’s bathing waters being handed the Excellent quality stamp for the third year in a row, we’re particularly blessed along the east coast with the bulk of our beaches hitting the highest standards possible.
On the Wicklow front, congrats also to Brittas Bay, north and south, for getting their Excellent stamps for the third year running. As, indeed, did Clogga. We just didn’t realise Clogga was a beach.

With a name like that, we had always assumed it was a troubled sewage plant.
