We have free Wi-Fi and Sky TV with a selection of shows and films recorded. 2 bedrooms and bathroom upstairs, double bedroom en-suite downstairs adjoining living room and kitchen.

You can go for a walk on the beach before breakfast, have a friendly chat with one of the locals then go to the shop for the paper and a chat with Peggy, the owner. Hook Lighthouse from the house, go there after breakfast and take the tour, then walk through the fields along the cliffs to Slade Harbour, a walk not to be missed, the scenery is amazing. Go back along the road and have lunch in the restaurant at the visitor centre. In the afternoon visit Loftus Hall, a big house with a lot of history, take the tour, see the great stairway and hear the stories of ghosts and the devil. In the evening go to Hal's

In the afternoon visit Loftus Hall, a big house with a lot of history, take the tour, see the great stairway and hear the stories of ghosts and the devil. In the evening go to Hal's or Roches on the corner in Duncannon, taste fantastic fish landed that day on Duncannon Quay or beef and lamb that have been raised grass fed on local farms. The potatoes, vegetables and fruit will also be from the locality.

If you would like to eat in a top class restaurant for a special night out, you have the choice of two within a mile of the village. Dunbroday House, home to celebrity chef, Kevin Dundon is very special as is the annual award winning Aldridge Lodge. Top class food from top class chefs always. An experience you won't forget.

Next day you could travel to Tintern Abbey, just 5 mile away, take the tour of grounds and garden, go for a walk in one of the designated areas, get a meal or cup of coffee when you finish. Dunbrody Abbey is also worth a visit, great location near the river, a secret passage way is said to link it with the buildings where you park. A maze and crazy golf are also part of this attraction. Further on the road to New Ross is the JF Kennedy arboretum, a great playground and a walk to the viewing point are some of the highlights. Learn lots about the plants and trees planted here.

Go on to the Kennedy Homestead a few miles away and then to the Famine Ship, the Dunbrody on the quayside in New Ross. See the Norman Tapestry and walk around the historic town. Next day go to Wexford, Johnstown Castle is very scenic and has a great museum, visit The Heritage Centre in Ferrycarrig, see the homes rebuilt from the stone age. if you fancy a bit of shopping go into Wexford town, it has a unique atmosphere, narrow streets and lots of local shops, not a place for the multi-nationals, some great shops with friendly staff and owners.

If you fancy a bit of the hurdy gurdys take the ferry to Waterford and go to Tramore, a seaside town with all the traditional amusements we associate with a lively seaside town. If you have any money left go into Waterford and do some shopping, you will find all the big name stores here. Great place to shop. of course you will also have to visit the historic monuments and the world known Waterford Glass.

All this is within 20 miles, if you want to go to Dublin or Cork they are only a 2 hour drive away. An easy trip on our great roads. You can easily take off in the morning, see the sights of our biggest cities and return in good time for a pint in Hal's and Irish music that night.

If you like an active holiday, this is the place for you. Kitesurfing lessons available from Niall on the beach, he also does board sailing, both great fun. At Shielbaggin Outdoor Adventure Centre about 2 mile away they do canoeing, cliff climbing, surfing and lots of other activities. If you are into golf or fishing you have lots of choice. There are 10 course within an hour's drive. Nearest is Faithlegg, just 6 miles away across the ferry to Waterford. A fine testing 18 hole course, other ones I would recommend are The Castle, on it's own little island near Waterford City, Waterford, Tramore, New Ross and a fine links course in Rosslare. They all have open weeks each year and open days most weeks.

Fishing is not bad on Duncannon Beach, you can generally catch a bass or flatfish. You can dig lugworm or buy from a local source. All the bays and harbours are fished, with a mixture of varieties caught. There is a boat for hire in the village, never met anyone disappointed with the trips out to Hook Head or Slade, generally catch more than you can handle. The cliffs from Slade Harbour to Hook are very popular in August and September are very popular for catching mackerel, if you don't fish it is a great place to buy a few fresh in from sea.

Overall, Duncannon is a place where you have the choice to either park your car for the week and walk around the beach and village, eat out each night and just generally relax. Alternatively you could go to a different town or county each day, see the sights, experience the culture and be home for a relaxing night. Or you could have a very active holiday, kitesurfing, boardsailing, walking, fishing or golf are within easy reach. You will want to come back again and again.

Location description from owner

The Province of Leinster region

Duncannon is in the sunny south east, in County Wexford on the Leinster border with Munster to the west, divided by the River Barrow. We can see the Comeragh mountains just beyond Waterford City, a trip to Mahon Falls is well worthwhile. Visit Waterford City for shopping, Dunmore East for its restaurants and Tramore for the amusements. Travel the Copper Coast to Bunmahon and Dungarven. From there is it about an hour to the Munster capital of Cok. Call to Ballymaloe House, home of celebrity chef Darina Allen, then on to Cork City, take a tour see all the great sights. Well worth a day trip on its own.

Travel to Dublin, about 2 hours away to the north east. See the sights and take the tours. Do the literary tour with Joyce and Behan among a host of others. Make sure to visit Glendalough and Avoca on the way up or back in the Wicklow Mountains just south of Dublin. Visit the historic city of Kilkenny to the north West, about an hour away, great atmosphere, one of the most popular cities in the country.

The sunny south east has the lowest rainfall and highest sunshine in Ireland, rain is only half the average for the west of Ireland and sunshine hours almost double. In winter a lot of birds migrate to this area.

Duncannon

Duncannon is on the Hook Peninsula, 14 different bays within that area. Hook Head is at the tip, just across from Dunmore East on the Waterford side. Lots of historic sites locally, castles in Slade, Fethard-on-sea and Ballyhack, Abbeys in Tintern and Dunbrody, a fort in Duncannon. The big house and ghostly tours in Loftus Hall, the gardens of Kilmokea, arboretum near Campile. A lot to do in a radius of about 15 miles.

Take the ferry to Waterford at Ballyhack, only 3 miles away. See the fishing villages of Passage East and Dunmore East. Do the tour of Waterford City with its historic Reginald's Tower and other Norman landmarks. Waterford is the biggest city in the area, with all the big name shops and some good local ones as well. You could definitely spend a good day there and it is only 10 miles away via the ferry.
