Wexford Walking Trail’s Annual Festival

Our annual festival offers a wide variety of walking trails and experiences. Since our first festival in 2014, we have welcomed people from far and near, from the experienced to the social walker – all are welcome. Our aim is to raise awareness of our trails, to encourage locals and tourists alike to use these great amenities. We plan each festival to cater to a wide range of interests and most importantly, to enjoy the experience. Together with the many volunteers who, in the main, look after and maintain the trails, we welcome you to join us. Click on the links below to get a flavour of our festivals. We look forward to seeing you at our next Festival!

2018 - A step back in time with nature

From Gorey to Tara Hill – this year’s festival will highlight our link with history whether in town, village or countryside, and our continuing reminder that there are walks within Co. Wexford to appeal to everyone’s quest for the natural world with our hills, woods, mountains and seaward-looking trails.


2017 - Rosslare to New Ross

The 2017 Festival highlighted our unique coastal ecosystems and our maritime heritage giving participants a flavour of Wexford’s stunning coastline and historic sites along the south-east tip of Ireland.

2016 - 100 years on...

Staying up North but heading west to Bunclody and Askamore and down to Enniscorthy, this year’s Festival commemorated The 1916 Rising, made a splash on the Slaney after dancing the night away with the Kilmyshall Set Dancers.

2015 - Historic Hill Trails & Foraging

In 2015 we headed north…walking events were held in Gorey, Tara Hill, Oulart Hill and Killanerin – each with its own theme to highlight the unique characteristic of the trail.

2014 - Coastal & Woodland Trails

The network’s inaugural Walking Festival took place in 2014, featuring coastal and woodland walks across south county Wexford and a trip to the Dunbrody Famine ship.
