Wexford (Loch Garman)
Known as the “Model County,” Wexford boasts coastal villages, sunny seashores, wildlife reserves, an Opera Festival and a Strawberry Fair amongst other things.
With the Atlantic ocean on its south coast and the Irish sea on its east, it is full of small coastal inlets, safe sandy beaches, delightful fishing creeks and bustling, busy harbours.
The county is also rich in history and heritage with an abundance of ancient churches and towers, heritage parks and museums tracing the life and times of the county from the dawn of its history.
Above all, the county is rich in memories of the 1798 Rising, when insurgent pikemen fought heroically against overwhelming odds.
Nowadays, the county offers the challenge of many top class golf courses as well as the excitement of horse and greyhound racing. Don’t forget to visit Curracloe Beach where the Stephen Spielberg movie “Saving Private Ryan” was filmed.
