The Irish National Heritage Park showcases 9,000 years of Irish History with recreations of everything from campsites and ring forts to fulacht fiadhs, crannogs, and Viking houses. The park is situated 18 km (11 miles) from Rosslare Europort.
One of the southeast’s leading tourist attractions, Dunbrody Famine Ship is a remarkable reproduction of an 1840s emigrant vessel. Join a guided tour, with costumed performers bringing to life the world of the famine emigrants, and see themed exhibitions demonstrating the experiences of Irish people facing the most desperate of situations.
Johnstown Castle is the type of fairytale spectacle that children dream about. This Disney-esque Victorian Gothic confection nestles in the heart of a beautiful garden estate. Located 5 km southwest of Wexford town, the magnificent parkland of forests, lakes, and ornamental gardens provides the ideal balance for your beach adventures.
