Wexford, County Wexford
Wexford is largely undiscovered, we call it the "secret island", an authentic experience of the people as we are. Distinct, we are a combination of three different cultures; Gaelic, Anglo-Irish and Norman. Indeed Wexford was the first soil touched upon by the Norman's when they first invaded Ireland in 1169.
The county enjoys a rare mix of mountains, valleys, flora, fauna and breathtaking beaches spanning 200 km of coastline. This delightful melange provides for active resorts, scenic villages and pretty harbours dotted around the coast. Serviced by two major rivers, the Slaney and Barrow, the county has become a well-recognised fishing paradise. The county is host to one of the busiest ferry ports in Ireland at Rosslare, servicing both the UK and mainland Europe, and are also within easy access of three major airports; Dublin, Cork and Waterford.
