The South East Ireland / County Wexford region
Ireland's Sunny South East - so called because it has Ireland's highest levels of sunshine - is a favourite destination for families with its wide sandy beaches, safe for swimming and all kinds of fishing and watersports. St Helens is within easy reach of historic Wexford Town, founded in the 8th century by the Vikings - with its famously narrow streets which you can shake hands across, and which is the birthplace of the founder of the US Navy, Commodore John Barry. Wexford is renowned for its annual Opera Festival, held in late October (23/10/13-03/11/2013) and the newest addition to the town's skyline is Wexford Opera House, opened in 2008, which is open to tours most weekends throughout the year and has a superb view over Wexford harbour from its Sky View Cafe. As well has hosting rare operas, the Festival Fringe events include recitals, art exhibitions, craft fairs and lots of activities for all the family in and around the town.

This is our fourth time staying here. We find we switch off as soon as we arrive.The house is bright and airy in summer ,but snug and cosy in winter. We had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our stay, with a well equipped kitchen, an open fire and a BBQ on the patio, if the sun was out. The house is laid out so that there is enough space to eat together but spend time in your room alone if thats what you prefer.The nearby beach is an hours walk from one end to the other and is an amazing refreshing way to spend the afternoon. My husband enjoys the golf course and our kids, 14 and 17 just enjoy the freedom and the fresh air.

We spent two weeks in June, it was exceptional. It was home from home with everything for comfort and to enjoy. Very safe for children. we had a six year old, 13 year old and 15 year old... accomodated for all. very high standards. a great starting point to alot of amazing places, highly recommend Kilmore Quay (fantastic fresh crab), Curroclough and the amazing Our Ladys Beach, something for everyone. NOT to be missed.
