Ballycross Apple Farm is a must-visit for all ages during the Autumn season. Take a traditional tractor and trailer ride to the farm’s pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumpkin.

Don’t forget to bring home some of Ballycross Apple Farm’s yummy apple juice!


The county is covered in gorgeous hiking trails and scenic seaside walks to enjoy whatever the weather. With over 250km of coastline, who says the sandy beaches in Wexford can only be enjoyed in the summer?
