Wexford boasts a spectacular coastline, a wealth of historic sites and attractive towns and villages. Our IPA Apartment is located in Clonard Village Co. Wexford, which is just on the outskirt of Wexford town, within walking distance of the town. As in many parts of Ireland, there are an abundance of golf courses and those together with mountaineering, hill walking, fishing and horse riding are all popular pastimes in this county.
Wexford has something unique to offer every visitor, and some of the main attractions include: The annual Opera Festival in Wexford Town, which is held every Autumn. Visitors to the New Ross area can visit The John F. Kennedy Arboretum and see the ancestral home of JFK, Bobby and Ted Kennedy. Popular heritage sites and historic attractions which attract visitors include The Irish National Heritage Park at Ferrycarrig, Dunbrody Abbey and Visitor Centre at Campile, Abercromby Monument at Carrigdaggin, Westgate Heritage Tower, The Wexford Wildfowl Reserve in Wexford, Tintern Abbey in New Ross, Ballyhack Castle in Ballyhack and Hook Head Lighthouse, to name but a few. Wexford has famously long beaches which are just as perfect for autumn strolls when its cloudy as they are for sunny summer evening dips.
