Dunmore Strand is located on the south coast of Ireland in County Waterford adjacent to Dunmore East village. 

Dunmore Strand is a sandy beach set within a large steep sided cove.  The beach has a gentle slope and is well protected and sheltered.  The tidal range is medium and most of the beach is covered at high tide. The cove surrounding the beach consists of striking red sandstone cliffs and geological features, such as folding, can be seen in the surrounding cliffs.  The cliffs support a variety of seabirds not least being the colony of kittiwakes which nest along the face of the cliffs.

The beach is accessed by a short ramp from the lower Dunmore village..  At low tide only it can also be accessed via the adjacent Counsellors Strand.  Shops and public toilets are available at the lower village.  Roadside parking is available along the approach roads to the village and beach.

In addition to swimming, bodyboarding and kayaking are popular activities at Dunmore Strand.  The adventure centre located at the harbour offers a variety of water sports and land based activities such as rock-climbing.  Sea angling and sightseeing trips are also available from the nearby harbour.  Whale (winter) and dolphin (summer) watching trips are also available.  Extensive woodland walks are possible from the village.
