    On the south-eastern corner of Ireland, the county of Wexford sits bounded by the sea on two sides; to the south lies the Celtic Sea of the Atlantic Ocean, whilst to the east St George's Channel and the Irish Sea lead over to the shores of Wales and England. The counties of Wicklow, Carlow, Kilkenny and Waterford border Wexford, with the River Barrow creating a boundary along its western edges.

    Things to do in County Wexford
    As one of the sunniest places in Ireland, County Wexford enjoys a mild, oceanic climate that makes it a particularly popular location with both residents and visitors alike. Two rivers, the Slaney and the Barrow cross the county; partly tidal, the Barrow is the second longest river in Ireland, and provides an inland link between the Grand Canal and the port of Waterford; meanwhile, the River Slaney flows down into the Irish Sea via a wide, shallow estuary known as Wexford Harbour.

    Wexford Harbour was once a major maritime port during the 15th and 16th centuries, handling cloth, wool, hides and fish; however, by the 19th century land drainage and the creation of dykes had caused the port to silt-up, killing its trade and making it largely unusable by anything larger than pleasure craft and dredgers. Today Wexford is a perfect base for visitors to access the local sea-fishing, and leisure sailing options, or to explore the varied flora and fauna, and noted wildfowl reserves.

    Mount Leinster is visible throughout much of the county, and is a popular location for climbers, walkers and enthusiastic hang-gliders. Perhaps more amazingly, the mountain has even been used as a cycling stage in bike races, including the peripatetic, sometimes-annual, Tour of Ireland; although with the gradient reaching more than 16% in places, it is certainly not a place for the faint-hearted cyclist.

    Top Destinations

    Wexford – The county town is close to the port of Rosslare, a deepwater harbour and a major access point for travellers from England, Wales and France. Positioned to the south of Wexford Harbour, the town also hosts an internationally recognised opera festival each October. Nearby, the ruins of the 12th century Selskar Abbey are all that remain following its destruction at the hands of Cromwell, although in 1172 the Abbey was also noted as the site of Henry II's month-long Lenten penitence for the murder of Thomas à Becket.

    The Hook Peninsula – Boasting a coastline of beautiful beaches and pretty fishing villages, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing, swimming and bird watching are all popular pursuits; the mudflats of the Bannow Estuary are particularly promising for nature-lovers, boasting waders and saltmarsh grasses, whilst at the tip of the peninsula, the Hook Head Lighthouse is one of the oldest in the world, with the current tower dating from the 12th century, and the days when an open fire on the top of the tower once served as a beacon for passing ships.

    Ballyteigue Burrow – Near to the village of Duncormick, Ballyteigue Burrow is one of the finest protected sand dune systems in Ireland; more than 9km of protected nature reserve are surrounded by the golden sands of Ballyteigue Bay. The estuary attracts large numbers of overwintering birds, including Golden Plover, Brent Geese, Black-tailed Godwit and Lapwings. It is also a noted location for a number of valuable invertebrates.

    Ferns – Once the capital of Leinster, the small, but historic town of Ferns boasts the ruins of a 13th century castle, a 12th century Augustinian Priory and a 13th century cathedral (said to be the smallest cathedral in Europe). With such a rich heritage, the town has some justification in promoting itself as 'the gateway to Norman Wexford', although there is considerable archaeological evidence which supports local habitation in the area from the time of the Bronze and Iron Ages, and through the early Christian period too.

    Enniscorthy – Home to a fine 12th century Anglo-Norman castle, Enniscorthy is the second largest town in Wexford. The pudding-shaped Vinegar Hill overlooks the town and was once – briefly – a rebel stronghold. Enniscorthy is notable for being the birthplace of the mother of the radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi, as well as, more recently, the acclaimed novelist and playwright Colm Tóibín. The town also boasts an annual dance festival, a Strawberry Fair, and a blues festival.
