  • "We loved Glen Gables - it's the perfect place for a stay at Fethard on Sea in the Hook Peninsula."

    The listing really doesn't do it justice - the grounds are beautiful, there IS wifi and there could be more detail about the layout and facilities. The house is utterly spotless and the owner lives next door and couldn't be more helpful. Highly recommended!

  • "Excellent holiday house for two couples, a group of friends or a family."

    In a quiet and attractive rural spot, a 15 min walk or short drive to the pleasant village of Fethard, which has a well stocked 7-11 type small supermarket, an great traditional pub, a gastronomic restaurant and two cafes and a couple of takeaways. Well situated to visit this lovely part of Ireland. The owner, Aidan, lives adjacent and is on hand if any problem arises and is a friendly man, always up for an interesting chat. The outside area is a lovely spot to have breakfast or an early evening drink, weather permitting. Recommended.

  • "We had a lovely welcome from the owner, Aiden and his two lovely dogs."

    The kitchen was well equipped and matching crockery not like some places we have stayed. Myself I thought the bed was not very comfy, but the bed my sister had was fine, There is an issue with the water pressure, but that could be the area (one shower at a time) It would be lovely and cosy in the winter with the wood burner going. It was lovely chatting with Aiden who was most welcoming.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday, the direction could have been better but did not effect our holiday."

    Everything we needed was there. The owner, Aidan, was at hand along with his beautiful dogs. Everything about the holiday was perfect, it was private, quiet and comfortable Certainly worth a revisit.

  • "We loved our two week stay at Glen Gable, 4 of us, including two children (10 and 12)."

    The location is fabulous, surrounded by fields, young cows in one field for our first week. The village is just a 15 min walk away or a few minutes by bike, less by car of need be, with a convenience store with fuel, bars, takeaways, even a restaurant and Fethard Castle. We took our bikes with us, and cycled to a few beaches, including Grange and Baginbun and Duncannon, but also drove to a few, including the fabulous Dollar Bay. The cottage is beautiful, set in lots of space, a nice long avenue gravelled driveway up to.the property. Extensive garden to the rear, including a small slide, fashioned swing, and a barbecue. It was so quiet, yet close enough to essential facilities. The beaches in the location vary greatly, but are all lovely. Some have facilities, others very little, so.yountake your pick. We would absolutely return to this location on a heart beat.

  • "A lovely house, great location with a peaceful garden."

    Described as detached, which should be changed as it is not and the owners live on site.

  • "A lovely well equipped and spotlessly clean cottage with a beautiful garden, in a perfect location."

    The owners were really friendly, close by if needed but not at all intrusive. They have clearly worked very hard to make the cottage so nice. We would stay again in a heartbeat, the kids didn't want to leave.

    Very friendly host with lots of local knowledge, and the house was spotlessly clean, with everything we needed for a lovely break.

  • "We had a wonderful family break - Glen Gable was exceptionally clean and so comfortable."

    The gardens and grounds around the house were beautiful and so well maintained. The house well stocked with all that a family would need and there was great fun on the adventures up the spiral staircase to the "top floor"! I would highly recommend Glen Gables - clean, comfortable, cosy, quite and only 700m from the lovely village of Fethard-on-Sea.

    The hosts are also 10/10 - very helpful while being non intrusive. Amazing gardens out back and the property is very private. Dream accommodation.

The property

Enjoying an enviable position, close to the lovely village of Fethard-On-Sea, which rests to the east of the Hook Peninsula, in the south-west of County Wexford is Glen Gable.

Approached via a tree-lined driveway and set within one acre of private grounds, this self-catering cottage offers an idyllic base for you and your loved ones to explore this stunning part of Ireland.

Inside the sitting room, picture windows affords a constant connection with the countryside beyond, whilst the woodburning stove is the focal feature of the room, setting a cosy ambiance as you curl up on the sofa and delve into a good book or browse the channels of the TV to unwind.

Take the door and discover the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where solid wooden floors lie beneath the country-style cabinets and the quality appliances that will assist you in cooking up culinary delights.

Climb the spiral staircase to find your sleeping quarters, comprising of the master suite with a plush king-size bed, a twin bedroom and a single bedroom, all three enjoying a home from home ambiance and pretty views of the garden to admire each morning.

Concluding the interior of the cottage is the family bathroom, boasting a shower over bath, so that you can choose how best to prepare for your day.

The garden has been wonderfully designed as an extension of the house itself, with a patio area to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining and a lawn area to meander, or pay a visit to the cottage owners, who are always on hand to offer advice on local attractions.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings as you venture into the attractive seaside village of Fethard-on-Sea, where you will find a plethora of places to eat and drink, as well as shops to explore before heading further afield to find the local beaches and coves.

Baginbun Beach is close by, where you can choose to walk along the shore, soak up the sunshine or take a refreshing dip in the clean waters, alternatively travel further along the peninsula towards Hook Lighthouse and stop off at the beaches of Patrick's Bay, Boyce's Bay and Sandeel Beach.

Head in the other direction to uncover some historical landmarks including the remains of the 13th century, Tintern Abbey and Duncannon Fort, or marvel at the beauty of Colclough Walled Garden, a restored 1800s Georgian attraction.

If you are feeling adventurous, take the ferry from the nearby village of Ballyhack to spend the afternoon in Waterford, the oldest city in Ireland, where you will find Reginald’s Tower, a circa-1003 fortification and the interesting Waterford Museum of Treasures, home to a collection of local archaeological finds.

With so much to see and do, Glen Gable promises to be an outstanding retreat for the whole family.

About the location


Duncannon 5.5 miles; New Ross 17 miles; Waterford 31.5 miles.

Fethard-on-Sea is a village nestling to the east of the Hook Peninsula, in the south-west of lovely County Wexford. Fethard-on-Sea has a colourful history, including the lifeboat tragedy of 1914, and the Fethard-on-Sea Boycott, which has been immortalised in print and on film. Now a quiet fishing and holiday village, Fethard makes a great base to enjoy sandy beaches, shops and pubs. The Hook Peninsula continues to attract visitors due to the ancient lighthouse and a multitude of beaches. There is a beach a day for a fortnight on the Peninsula, plus there are a variety of watersports, such as diving, snorkelling and shore angling, along with painting and birdwatching. There are many interesting historical sites to visit, such as Tintern Abbey with its walled garden, guided tour and forest walk and medieval abbeys in Dunbrody and Graiguenamanagh, plus the star shaped Elizabethan Fort at Duncannon houses a military and maritime museum, and The Cockleshell Art Gallery. Head up to New Ross and visit the JFK Arboretum or the Dunbrody Famine Ship, or travel over to Waterford in the west or Wexford in the east to take in all they have to offer, from the Wexford Opera House, Johnstown Castle and The Heritage Park to Waterford Castle and Waterford Crystal.
