Activities in Wexford

Wexford offers a host of exciting outdoor activities and adventures that create precious family moments in stunning settings.

Whether you prefer the serenity of woodland walks, fairy gardens and hand-feeding animals or maybe the historic setting of manicured gardens and the tea rooms of a Victorian-era house.

Or, on the contrary, you may experience an action-packed afternoon of archery, karting and adventure golf to name just a few hobbies you might take home from holidays.

Hop on a river cruise, take to paddleboard, enjoy a family day kayaking in the Hook peninsula, or strap yourself into the driving seat for a karting adventure. All those activities are possible in Wexford.

There are also many indoor activities for those with a different taste in the fun. Loads of arts & crafts activities, 

 

All in all, there is no shortage of fun adventures in Wexford for everyone to choose from to suit all tastes and needs. See below to check out some of the great activities available in Wexford this Summer.
