Rediscover Wexford and Make it a #Wexcation to Remember

Looking to spend autumn and winter on a #Nearcation?

Rediscover Wexford and Make it a #Wexcation to Remember. 


With Ireland moving to further restrictions, our lovely visitors outside of County Wexford are advised not to make the trip to the Sunny South-East. It’s time for fellow Wexfordians to travel locally and rediscover our Model County.


Our #TravelTuesday tip: Re-discover and embrace our stunning county of Wexford this year by staying and supporting local. Take advantage and make a break for it to one of our local hotels for a #Countycation, while escaping and discovering County Wexford’s great outdoors. Whether you’re looking to discover a part of Wexford you’ve never seen before, or taking a nostalgia #Nearcation in the sunny south-east, there’s no doubt you will discover a side to Wexford that you never met before. In the meantime, ensure the safety of yourself and others is at the forefront of your mind as you rediscover Wexford.


A push towards #Nearcations in County Wexford gives us here in the corner of Ireland’s Ancient East every reason to stay and support local. And so, for this week’s #TravelTuesday, we have compiled a list of County Wexford’s hotels that have remained open and ready for business, with deals that will steal everyone’s cravings to rediscover and adventure County Wexford.
