A selection of beautiful walks awaits you in Wexford: wooded, historic, coastal and mountain trails. You can choose a different walk each day and savour the varied beauty of Europe’s most western isle. County Wexford, in the south-east of the island, has an exceptionally varied landscape ranging from long sandy beaches in the east to the wild Hook Peninsula in the south-west. You can walk through bird-rich polders beside Wexford town or traverse the slopes of Mount Leinster and the Blackstairs Mountains in the west. In between, you can choose from a wide range of quality walks through quiet rural landscapes of diverse character and all steeped in the history of the island long regarded as ‘the end of the known world’. Wexford, on the gentle River Slaney, has been the gateway for repeated invasions down the centuries and abounds in archaeological treasures – religious, civic and military, from the earliest times down to the high mediaeval and the John F Kennedy experience of recent decades.
Wexford is accessible through Rosslare Port with Dublin less than two hours away. Enjoy the bustle of our ancient towns of Wexford, New Ross and Enniscorthy and the thriving market town of Gorey. Log on to www.visitwexford.ie to find out more about our walks, heritage, shopping, accommodation, and nightlife. Unfortunately, many of our walks have rugged terrain and so only the Gardeners Trail in Tintern is fully accessible for buggy or wheelchair users. All walks are graded and the length of each trail is indicated to assist you to select the right walk for your ability.
