You’ll quickly warm to the charm and beauty of sunny Wexford. Visit Wexford and spend a day rambling around the historic streets of Wexford Town, oozing with character and you’ll soon fall in love with this Viking town.
Escape to the County Wexford coast and discover the beaches in Curracloe and Kilmuckridge . Or head south to Kilmore Quay and use it as a launchpad to explore the Saltee Islands – one of the best places in Ireland to see puffins in the wild.
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.
