The Rocks

This hilly area on the outskirts of Wexford Town is characterised by its rocky outcrops which are surrounded by walking trails, trees, grass and wild plants such as the beautify gorse bush.

There is also a historical significance to Trespan Rock as it was used by Oliver Cromwell during his siege of the town in 1649. 

Magnificent panoramic views can be enjoyed overlooking Wexford Harbour and beyond.
