Bettystown, Co. Meath

Bettystown (Irish: Baile an Bhiataigh) is a famous seaside resort with a fine, sandy stretch of beach - that hosts an annual horse racing meeting during the summer, it is the only official race on a beach in Europe - from Laytown to the mouth of the Boyne at Mornington. In recent years, with the huge increases in Dublin house prices, Bettystown has expanded to cater for large numbers of commuters to Dublin.

The eight century Tara Brooch, one of the best examples of the goldsmiths art in early Christian Ireland was discovered on the beach at Bettystown in 1850.

Leisure facilities in the Bettystown area include Funtasia, a family amusement park with a variety of attractions, a golf course and a dive centre offering a range of courses, trips to local dive sites and organised trips further afield. There is also a local links golfcourse known as "the Burrows."
