Location description from owner

The Province of Leinster region

The Village owes its existence to Duncannon Fort, less than 500 yards from our house. The Fort with the first settlements reputedly being in the third century A.D. By the 1870's Duncannon had developed into a entre of great commerce. This progress helped with introduction of a steamer service to New Ross and Waterford. At one stage the village grew to a point where it could boast five churches, three schools, a hospital, five pubs and a cinema. Duncannon is now a beautiful and friendly fishing village bustling with life in the summer and offering a warm welcome to the visitor. Hook Lighthouse the oldest working in Europe, is a short drive as is many Abbeys and histrocial places of reference

The Tall Ship Dunbrody

The Dunbrody will house an educational exhibition re-enacting life on board the ship as she carried her passengers from New Ross to the US and Canada in the middle of the last century. It will tell the history and explore what they did and how they contributed to the growth of their new country.

Fethard Castle
A fifteenth century castle built on the remains of a much earlier site. Following the arrival of the Anglo-Normans in Ireland in 1169, the district in which Fethard is situated was granted to a knight named Harvey de Montmorency. He, in turn, granted it to Christ Church, Canterbury, England. In 1200A.D. Canterbury ordered the construction of a castle at Fethard and a court to the north of the church, presumably on the site of the present castle

Dunbrody Abbey & Visitors Centre:
The abbey, dating from 1210 A.D., is one of the most vivid and imposing old Cistercian remains in Ireland.

Tel: 051 388603
Duncannon Fort

Duncannon Fort is a star shaped fortress on an important promontory in Waterford Harbour. It was built in 1558 in the expectation of an attack on the area by the Spanish Armada. The Fort is surrounded by a 30 ft high dry moat and has one of the oldest lighthouses of its kind in Ireland. All the major buildings in the Fort surround a parade ground. A walk around the outer ramparts afford spectacular views across the estuary to Co. Waterford and down to Hook Head. Located at a lower level than the moat is the croppy boy cell. After the 1798 rebellion, prisoners were detained here pending transfer to Geneva Barracks for trial and sentencing. An added attraction from 2002 is the Maritime Museum which charts the maritime history of one of the most dangerous coastlines in Ireland, the Wexford coast.

The Kennedy Homestead
The Kennedy Homestead, birthplace of President John F. Kennedy's great-grandfather Patrick Kennedy, celebrates the story of five generations of the Kennedy dynasty and is still farmed by his descendants today.
Joining the multitudes of Irish fleeing the Great Famine, Patrick Kennedy departed from this Homestead for the port of New Ross on a wet day in 1848 to set sail for the United States where his descendants were to become the worlds most famous family.
The Kennedy Homestead is a unique Cultural Museum and Visitor Centre, celebrating this family history like no other

“Excellent location however accommodation is a bit tired and needs a makeover.”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2012

Absolutely everything you could imagine is included in this rental, everything for the beach from deckchairs and windbreaks to buckets and spades for the kids. My only concern was that the property was a little bit tired looking and needed a general overhaul. The garden is scruffy now and not really a very pleasant place to sit. Overall we had a great weekend in Duncannon. I would recommend due to the location, however I would advise anyone to check with owner re cleaning.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your valued comments, which we appreciate you taking the time to make. Our priority is to ensure that our guests have as enjoyable a stay as possible, as we appreciate that holiday time is precious. We advise our guests to notify us immediately, if they find any aspect of our home is not up to standard, so we have an opportunity to rectify this and ensure complete satisfaction with our accommodation. We have recently given our holiday home a complete makeover and made various improvements, which we trust our guests will approve of. We have let our home again this year for the summer season and so far any comments received from guests have been very positive, with repeat bookings already requested for later in the year.
