Our annual Walking Festival usually takes place in September. Details for 2023 will be announced in the coming months.


2019 - Four Peaks

This year introduces our walkers to the high points in each area of our county network of walks. Wexford Walking Trails is highlighting some of our higher walks – giving you wonderful views over the entire county on some of our more strenuous, but still very manageable trails

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.
