COUNTY WEXFORD – WHY GO?
Known as Ireland's sunshine coast, County Wexford in the South East is the place for blue skies and beautiful beaches. Charming towns and rolling scenery make this a great place to visit, and County Waterford is just on the doorstep.
MUST SEE, MUST DO
County Wexford is fringed with lovely beaches. Wide open Curracloe Strand was the setting for the Normandy landings in Stephen Spielberg’s film Saving Private Ryan. Remote and breathtaking, the white-sanded beach is flanked by desolate bluffs and angry waves – giving it an epic, timeless feel.
Waterford also packs in plenty of appeal, and the town itself is home to the famous Waterford crystal. This vibrant maritime city is the oldest in Ireland, with plenty of modern shops and nightlife to keep visitors entertained.
Wexford Wildfowl Reserve
The Wexford Slobs, despite the funny name, are important birding areas that are home to wild geese that migrate there in winter time from Greenland and Iceland. At the visitor centre there’s an audio-visual show and some interesting exhibits.
Keen anglers should head to Wexford’s pretty port of Kilmore where there are fishing trips available from the busy marina. Try the River Barrow for adrenaline-fuelled kayaking and rafting.
MAKE A DATE
There’s sure to be plenty of craic on March 17 for St Patrick’s Day.
