Only twenty-five minutes from Rosslare Europort & Wexford town, this corner of South County Wexford is steeped in rich history and folklore. Discover the unique heritage of the area, exploring from Kilmore Quay to Bridgetown, Baldwinstown to Tomhaggard and back to Kilmore. This is the land of the old Yola dialect, site of one of the oldest graveyards in Ireland, a landscape dotted with Norman castles and beautifully preserved thatched houses, surrounded by a stretch of ocean known as the “graveyard of a thousand ships”. Visit the magnificent Saltee Islands, a world renowned bird sanctuary which lies just offshore.
