Nudist beach


Irish beach goers will soon be able to get their kit off and top up their tans au natural with the opening of a new nudist beach. 

The beach, located at Hawk Cliff in Dalkey, Co. Dublin, will be the first of it's kind in the country, with Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council set to erect public notices warning the public about seeing their fellow beach users in the nip. 

According to The Irish Sun, Irish Naturist Association chief Pat Gallagher explained: “Every other country in Europe has these kind of signs. It is a milestone for ­Ireland.”

It follows recent changes to the law making it perfectly legal to sun bathe sans clothing.

The signage is expected to be put in place in the coming weeks, with the paper also reporting that the INA are in talks with other local authorities about putting similar instructions in place. 

It's thought the move could result in a tourism boost for Ireland with Pat explaining how people would be more open to visiting our beaches if they knew the same laws applied as in their home country. 

However, not everyone is happy about the change.  

Some Councillors have opposed the move, arguing it come be detrimental for the local community. 

John Bailey told The Irish Sun: “I would be totally opposed. Dalkey is a very settled community and it would bring people in that shouldn’t come into the town. I don’t agree with it.”

Whatever your thoughts, the signs are going up and we'll all have the option of relaxing in our birthday suits this summer. 




As a nation it's fair to say that we're absolutely MAD for the craic, but the crack? Well, not so much.

Despite our international rep for top-class banter, we can be a coy bunch when it comes to some things, and public nudity is one of them…or is it?!

By the sounds of things, many of us may have majorly underestimated our fellow countrymen's desire to let it all hang out, and had NO idea that our fair city boasts an unofficial nudist beach.

That's right, ladies, people are stripping down and get their strut on…a mere stone's throw from the village of Donabate.

According to the Irish Naturist Association, who provide the public with a guide of unofficial Irish nudist beaches,"This area is known as Corballis and is used by naturists."

While it sounds like this 'fine' beach is spot-on if you want to bronze your bits and commune with nature, the organisation do remind the public that "nude swimming or sunbathing on a public beach or in a public place is, therefore, illegal."

"However, provided you use discretion and common sense, you should have no problems," their website advises. "No member of the Irish Naturist Association has ever been prosecuted for naturist activities."

The weather IS set to reach continental figures this week girls, so go wild!
