Wexford, Ireland 

As you can tell by the title of this post I will be discussing one of my favourite places in the world, Ireland. I have previously done a post on county Cork and this one will be based on the beautiful county of Wexford. As some of you may know I visit Ireland several times a year as I have A LOT of family spread all of the country and I love to get home as often as I possibly can to see them all. I really can’t complain either as flights are soo cheap! 

When I manage to get home, one of my favourite places to spend the day is in Wexford. I went to school here for a few years and it is renound for its exquisite sights. 

It is a town located in southeast Ireland on the Hook peninsula known for its medieval lanes, national opera house, heritage tower and the ruined 12th century Selskar Abbey. We visited here many times as children and I still enjoy as much now as I did then. 

I always go straight to Hook Head when we have a day of nice weather – which can be rare. Hook Lighthouse is the oldest operational lighthouse in the world. It has tours inside everyday and is truly fascinating so make sure you check out the timetable before you go. It is at the tip of the Hook peninsula and is described as one of the top 14 attractions in Ireland. 

Right next to Hook is the beautiful coastline which you can walk around and explore. On a good day this can be absolutely breathtaking! Bring a picnic and make a day of it.

Another fun tourist attraction to visit is Loftus Hall. This is the most haunted mansion in Ireland that is said to have been haunted by the devil and the ghost of a young woman. Again they do tours all year round and I would 100% recommend it, it will make the hairs on your neck stand up. It’s so fascinating to visit somewhere with such history so check and the timetable and get some tickets. The staff in there are incredible as well and really make the experience worthwhile. 

Wexford also has a lovely little town centre which is nice to have a walk around too. But if you’re planning to spend a day there get yourself a map and head straight to the coast. It’s amazing, one of my favourite spots. 

I’m sorry this post was short and sweet. I just wanted to give a little insight to one of my favourite Irish counties and a few of the tourist attractions I would reccomend. Happy travelling and let me know if you’re planning on visiting Ireland soon.
