Beauty on our doorstep
Being involved in a tourism business, I’m so lucky to spend a lot of my time taking visitors all around Enniscorthy and the surrounding area. In Enniscorthy, we are fortunate to have an 800-year-old castle right in the centre of town, the elegant River Slaney enhanced by its dedicated walking trail running alongside it, and of course historic Vinegar Hill with its dramatic views of the surrounding landscape.
We enjoy Ireland’s best weather and an enviable location just an hour by motorway from south Dublin, forty minutes from Rosslare Europort, and twenty minutes from some of the best beaches in the world. Director Steven Spielberg was so impressed by nearby Curracloe beach that he filmed the famous beach-landing scene from Saving Private Ryan there and more recently the Brooklyn movie beach scenes were filmed there. Wells House, Oulart Hill, Curracloe (where you can learn to surf), the villages of Blackwater and Kilmuckridge with their nearby beaches, Borodale, Secret Valley Wildlife Park & Zoo, Mount Leinster with its stunning walking trails, etc are all on our doorstep. Within a short drive, there’s Courtown, Rosslare, New Ross, Wexford town, Johnstown Castle and the Hook Head peninsula. You’ll always be spoilt for things to see and do in Enniscorthy and beyond.
