Wexford Walking Trail
A selection of beautiful walks awaits you in Wexford: wooded, historic, coastal and mountain trails. Choose a different walk each day. Located in the south-east of the island of Ireland, County Wexford has an exceptionally varied landscape for you to savour. Ranging from long sandy beaches in the east to the wild Hook Peninsula in the south-west. Walk through bird-rich polders beside Wexford town. Traverse the slopes of Mount Leinster and the Blackstairs Mountains in the west.
Choose from a wide range of quality walks through quiet rural landscapes of diverse character. All trails are 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. Archaeological treasures abound: religious, civic, military, from the earliest times down to the high mediaeval to the John F Kennedy experience of recent decades.

It is our responsibility to adhere to all the guidelines outlined and to focus on our own personal health. In doing so we will save lives.
