You’ll quickly warm to the charm and beauty of sunny Wexford
From the sun-warmed beaches and pretty coastal villages of Courtown, Curracloe and Duncannon to the tranquil beauty of the John F Kennedy Arboretum, Wexford flows along on a chilled-out vibe.
There’s nothing too hurried, nothing too hectic in this laid-back corner of Ireland’s sunny south east, but instead the county is blessed with lots of cosy picturesque villages, a wide range of birdlife, fascinating castles, abbeys and country houses and, of course, the oldest operational lighthouse in the world at Hook Head.
The nearest airport is Waterford Airport in neighbouring Co Waterford, but it is a small regional airport, offering only flights to Britain. The nearest major airports are Dublin and Cork airports, each about two hours’ drive from Wexford.
County Wexford is a convenient location for access to the Dublin, Dun Laoghaire and Rosslare car ferry ports. Rosslare Harbour, situated in the very south-east of the county, is Ireland’s Europort and provides direct access to the U.K. and Continental Europe through the ports of Fishguard and Pembroke Dock in the U.K. and through Cherbourg and Le Havre in France
