Welcome to The Beach Pearl in Arthurstown, south west County Wexford. Recharge your batteries and enjoy simple strolls, unspoilt beaches, the best of food and the great outdoors.
The Beach Pearl is a lovingly refurbished fisherman's cottage dating from over 150 years ago. Situated facing directly onto the Waterford Estuary where three rivers meet the sea, the view will take your breath away! In fact, there's no need to even leave the house to appreciate the views - you can see them from the living room toasting your toes at the stove ! Watch the sun set over picturesque Passage East village in County Waterford across the water from your front door.
With a little beach only 10 meters from the front door and a perfect sunny south westerly aspect, The Beach Pearl is equally beautiful in any season. A paradise for kayaking, fishing, walking enthusiasts, foodies and lovers alike ! It's also good for doing very little if that's what you're after : - ) On the doorstep of the famous Dunbrody House Hotel and celebrated "The Local" pub, let us whet your appetite and read ahead....

About this location
The Province of Leinster region
Arthurstown is a small picturesque village in south west County Wexford perched at the edge of Hook Head peninsula and facing onto Waterford Estuary. Situated where the Three Sisters rivers meet the sea, it's only 3 km to the village of Duncannon with its fine beach more than a kilometer long, 1km to Ballyhack where the ferry leaves for its five minute trip to Waterford, Ireland's oldest city and the popular seaside village of Dunmore East and a 15 minute drive to Hook Lighthouse , the oldest working lighthouse in the world. They say on the Hook you can find a beach a day for a fortnight so allow plenty time for your break away!
Arthurstown is only 20km from the historic town of New Ross and 13km from John F. Kennedy Memorial Park , 623 acres of stunning gardens dedicated to the memory of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy . If you're looking for an urban break from the coast, Wexford town might fit the bill , only 37 kms away.
An easy trip from Dublin and Rosslare and even from Cork to the west and yet when you get here it feels like a world away.
Arthurstown is well known for Dunbrody House Hotel and The Local Pub . Home to celebrity chefs Kevin Dundon and Richard Corrigan who love it here. We love it here too ! Come and try it yourself : - )

I love the accommodation, very quaint but lovely. All mod cons provided. I loved the stove and the comfort of a fire if needed, the location was perfect and the views were to die for .
That is super news to us that you had such a good holiday in The Beach Pearl! We never tire of the views when we stay there. Thank you for your comments and possibly see you again next year :-)

"Fantastic views,beautiful accomadation, so peaceful,everything so close."
I could not believe how beautiful this old house has been renovated with such great taste and style, keeping in mind the old sea faring world. Siting inside watching the tide going in and out, Paradise. So close to all the local top tourist spots, the Hook Lighthouse, Loftus Hall , a must on a Saturday night for the Ghost tour. Dunbrody house , a 5 minute walk from your door, fantastic food. Watching the ferry in the distance crossing from Munster to Leinster in less than 5 minutes. J F Kennedy house and park 10 mins drive, The Dunbrody ship in New Ross a must. The beaches, what can one say but WOW. Neighbours so helpful and friendly, best holiday ever.
Delighted you had such a nice time on your romantic break away :-) . I see you've booked another week there soon so that has to be a good sign ! Hopefully the weather will be as good for you as last time.

I think this was your first trip to Ireland so we're glad you enjoyed staying in The Beach Pearl! The views really are stunning . We enjoy sitting out on the deck chairs and watching the sun go down over the Estuary :-) . A good holiday always passes too quickly. Thank you for taking time to complete the review.

Very happy you had such a comfortable stay . Anyone that's stayed there to date seems to have really enjoyed it , both the accommodation and the area : - )
