Let Wexford Fuel Your Autumn Memories

Autumn is a magical time to visit Wexford and offers so much more than its renowned scenic beauty.


If Autumn isn’t already your favourite season, prepare to be blown away! Bask in the sweet scent of fruit-laden trees, wrap up warm in cosy jumpers and feel the crunch of crisp leaves underfoot whilst you explore the gorgeous scenic hikes and woodland walks around Wexford. After all, County Wexford is the #BestForSun and #BestForTrails. So #MakeABreakForIt and #GetLostInWexford this autumn while Ireland #FeelsBigger. Don’t forget to view our #TravelTuesday blog posts to discover the best walking trails in County Wexford and the top 10 tips to stay safe during your visit


In Autumn, Wexford’s coast is alive with migrating birds and the Hook Peninsula offers some of the best whale-watching excursions the country has to offer. Not to mention the stunning views from Hook Lighthouse, one of the oldest operational lighthouses in the world. Loftus Hall is the ideal attraction around Halloween as you explore Ireland’s most haunted house – if you dare!


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 history of the 1798 Rebellion in Enniscorthy, discover the emigration story of Dunbrody Famine Ship or get intrigued by pre-historic times with a visit to the Irish National Heritage Park.


Throughout the season, experience the great outdoors and the beauty of the county.


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. The farm is surrounded by walking trails where you can stretch the legs and return to the on-site cafe for a hot drink to warm up after your excursions. 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? There is nothing like a stroll along Curracloe Beach, Baginbun Beach or Ballymoney Beach on an autumnal afternoon.
