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,
