Attractions

Golf
With six championship courses, County Wexford is a golfers paradise.

The wonderful natural terrain around our coastline provides superb link and parkland courses. Wexford Golf Club is within minutes of the house. Rosslare Golf Club and St. Helen's Bay Golf Club are within 15 minutes drive.

Angling
With over 200 km of coastline, Angling it is one of our greatest resources.

Shore angling is also a very popular pastime among the locals who can direct you the best locations.

Wexford County possesses an abundance of clean rivers and lakes to cater for the coarse and game
angler; the Rivers Barrow and Slaney are the two largest rivers.

Wexford Beaches
Two hundred kilometres of coastline on two seas: miles and miles of
unspoilt golden strand and secluded coves, four Blue Flag awards attesting to the purity of the water, added to the wild beauty and more hours of sunshine than any other part of Ireland make Wexford a beach lovers paradise.

Equestrian
With horse riding being such a popular leisure activity in Wexford, it's no wonder that we have such a selection of excellent equestrian centres to choose from.
.

Wexford Festival Opera
The annual Wexford Festival Opera is the jewel in the crown of Ireland's arts programme, an event of truly international importance which marks the county out as a major venue for the performing arts.
For opera lovers, its a unique chance to see full stagings of lesser-known works by great composers, plus a wide programme of recitals, concerts and lectures.

National 1798 Centre, Enniscorthy
The National 1798 visitor centre traces the Rebellion of 1798 in County Wexford, together with events as they happened in Europe, United States and Australia.

The Revolution experience is a dramatic audio visual display using a curved screen to simulate
the battle of Vinegar Hill and is the highlight of the show.

Johnstown Castle
The harmony between great Victorian revival castles and their surrounding ornamental grounds is rarely seen to such perfection as at Johnstown Castle.

The mature woodlands and lakes of this demesne provide the perfect setting for this turreted, battlemented and machicolated  
castle of gleaming silver-grey ashlar, built between 1810 and 1855 and incorporating part of a more ancient castle.

Hook Lighthouse
Visit one of the Oldest Operational Lighthouses in the World.

Hook Head, wild and elemental, tranquil and serene, in its serenity hides the treachery which bewaits unsuspecting mariners.
Little wonder that William Marshall earl of Pembrokeshire undertook the building of the
lighthouse in the early 13th century as a navigational aid to guide his ships into Waterford Harbour.

Irish National Heritage Park
The Irish National Heritage Park depicts many settlements in Ireland from 7000 BC to the arrival of the Norman's in the 12th century. Stroll through the park with it's homesteads, places of ritual, burial modes with long forgotten remains.
Your sense 's come alive with sights and sounds stretching back 900 years.

Dunbrody Famine Ship
The original Dunbrody was a three-masted barque built in Quebec, Canada, for the Graves family of New Ross, Co. Wexford in 1845.
She carried many emigrants to the new world from 1845-1870.

The Dunbrody Project involved the construction of a full scale
sea-going replica.
The Dunbrody was finished in early 2001 and is now opened to visitors at the quayside in New Ross.
