Situated on the picturesque South East Coast of Ireland, County Wexford is a haven for history buffs, nature enthusiasts and those just wanting a relaxing getaway. It is easy to immerse yourself in the county’s vibrant local history. Explore the remains of the medieval Tintern Abbey, take a guided tour around the oldest working lighthouse in the world, or wander around the fascinating Irish National Heritage Park. Visit Wexford Town for a dose of culture, the National Opera House hosts a number of shows throughout the year as well as the annual Wexford Festival Opera.

Not only does Wexford boast a number of Blue Flag rated beaches, it is also known for being the sunniest county in Ireland, making it the perfect destination for a summer break. Wildlife enthusiasts can follow the 5km nature trail through the protected sand dunes of Curracloe Beach to the Raven Nature Reserve.

Further opportunities present themselves at the Saltee Islands; located just off the coast of Kilmore Quay, the islands play host to a number of species of seabird as well as a population of Grey Seals.
