The Blue Flag Organisation is an international body aimed at promoting environmental awareness and sustainable development of areas of natural beauty. The environmental organisations that look after Ireland's beaches are An Taisce (in the Republic of Ireland) and Encams (in Northern Ireland). Both have kindly produced for Discovering Ireland Vacation, a list of Blue Flag Beaches & Marinas throughout the island of Ireland.
