Let Wexford Fuel Your Autumn Memories

If Autumn isn’t already your favourite season, prepare to be blown away! Bask in the sweet scent of fruit-laden trees, rug up warm in cozy sweaters and feel the crunch of crisp red leaves under foot whilst you explore the fast-changing landscape. Autumn is a magical time to visit Wexford and offers so much more than its renowned scenic beauty.

In Autumn, Wexford’s coast is alive with migrating birds, the Hook Peninsula offers some of the best whale-watching excursions the country has to offer and Loftus Hall provides one of the spookiest Halloween experiences country-wide. Throughout The season you will be treated to culinary delights in great restaurants and food fests around the county.

The Rich tapestry of Ireland’s History comes vividly to life in the Cornerstone of Ireland’s Ancient East. Immerse yourself in Wexford’s past and uncover 9,000 years of history. Experience the beauty around the dramatic Hook Lighthouse, discover the emigration story of Dunbrody Famine Ship or get intrigued by pre-historic times with a visit to the Irish National Heritage Park.

Couple this with Autumn fairs and festivals which are the delight of children, with their pumpkin patches, rides and farm animals, off-season holiday rates and next to no queues, and you’ll need no persuasion for a weekend spent in the sharp, crisp, country air or at one of Wexford’s many seasonal events.
