Rosslare in Wexford is a very sheltered beach break. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest with some shelter here from south winds. Usually gets local windswells, but groundswells do happen and the best wave direction is from the south. The beach breaks favour lefts and there is right hand reef break too. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Rocks are a hazard.
