Curracloe Beach

Curracloe Beach is a regular holder of the Blue Flag Beach status. The dunes are currently the subject of an active conservation policy by Wexford County Council ensuring that this marvellous amenity and the plant and wildlife it contains, will be preserved for future generations. A nature trail runs through the dunes and continues for 5 km to Raven Point, passing through the beautiful peninsula which constitutes Raven Nature Reserve.

These two churches are more or less identical and were designed by a Gothic Revival architect friend of Pugin . They are truly magnificent and well worth a visit .

Wexford Wildfowl Reserve

Reviewed By C_and_H_11 - Dublin, Ireland

We were here in January & it was a bright & sunny day but very cold. Once you have the proper gear there's no reason not to enjoy all the reserve has to offer. It's a wonderful place with plenty of viewing sites available to see the wildfowl in their natural habitat, enjoying the freedom of the reserve. The areas are well laid out with walkways in all directions & hides to view from. It's very informative & a good way to introduce children to wildlife at close range (bring your binoculars) A great place to spend a few hours for young & old & there's no charge!

Antique Tavern

Reviewed By BJCahill - Dublin, Ireland

Without a doubt if you do not have a good bar person then shut your doors. Jimmy take a bow you are a legend and you are what all bars in this mad pandemic need. Common sense, comply within the regulations, treat your customers with respect, because its as hard for them, as it is for staff. Then abuse them in that Irish way that makes us all smile. Well done great greeting, great pub, great company,great drink great food available if needed and more importantly open for business we will be back Brian Dublin Cahill. Dublin Airport.

Ferns Castle

The castle was built in the 13th century, possibly by William, Earl Marshall. Originally, the castle formed a square, with large corner towers. Only half of the castle now remains.

We were 5 family members from 24 to 88 yrs 3 visiting from Marseille France and we had a wonderful visit to Ferns Castle, we wish to thank our guide John and the staff at Ferns for their excellent welcome. We were thoroughly engaged in the story of the castle, the area and the history of ireland painted beautifully in words by our host John. We would highly recommend visiting this small but exceptional heritage site brought to life by the passionate and knowledgeable staff. Murray Murphy Perez family

Courtown Woods

Reviewed By nicolawhelan - Gorey, Ireland

Recently, Joe, Sammy and I went for a pleasant walk in Courtown Woods. It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining. There were a few people about and we acknowledged them on our walk. We find it very relaxing and peaceful. The trees are lovely. I would recommend this place for all that visit as there’s a lot to see as there’s a hotel, a shop and the seafront nearby. There’s even crazy golf and a golf course nearby as well.
