Wexford Walking Trails (WWT) welcomes you to our first festival event. Established in 2014, WWT is a network of trails throughout County Wexford. It consists of a variety of trails ranging from mountain, coastal, forest to heritage walks reflecting the rich tapestry of our natural and built heritage. This is our first festival and we are delighted to have you here with us to celebrate this unique event. We hope you enjoy what we have planned for you and be assured this is just a flavour of what we have in our county. There are many other locations, each with its own unique character which you are welcome to visit at another time. We hope the connections we make on this, our inaugural WWT festival weekend will be the first of many mutually beneficial events in the coming years.
