It lies on the R742 regional road at the junction with R743, and is linked to the long and sandy Curracloe Strand (beach) by the short R743 road, 4km to the east. Curracloe sees a huge influx of holiday travellers every summer, who stay in bed & breakfast inns, mobile homes and caravan parks.Ballinesker Beach / Curracloe StrandBallinesker Beach, Curracloe Strand, Ballinesker, were used for the filming of the D-Day sequence in Saving Private Ryan, due to similarity to Omaha Beach in Normandy.
