Retire to Wexford for Autumn Breaks Away

Retire to Wexford for the Weekend


Craving a getaway with your other half, your siblings or your adult family this year?

Wexford is proven to be the perfect place for you to escape for Autumn Breaks and enjoy your Golden Years!


Visit Wexford and #KeepDiscovering Ireland’s Ancient East this Autumn!


With this half of the year owed to autumn’s rustic blanket and an abundance of offerings in County Wexford waiting to be discovered through to it’s winter capabilities, it’s the perfect time to Visit Wexford when the smallies are back to school! This #TravelTuesday we want to highlight just as much to those looking to seek escape, tranquility, peace and relaxation through the cooler and quieter months.


Our #TravelTuesday tip: Make the most of your trip to County Wexford and visit an array of offerings in our beautiful corner of Ireland. Alternatively, make it a relaxing leisurely trip by taking it to the beach for an early morning dip and walk, hit lunch in a local garden centre and make it back for an afternoon at the spa. Whatever you decide to do, make sure to retire to Wexford for the weekend and take it easy!



Leisurely Lifestyle

Make it a break to remember this year as you unwind, take it slow and leisurely live in the moment. Take in the atmosphere of some of Wexford’s lovely establishments and appreciate the slower life in our sunny south east. Have a gander through Wexford Lavendar Farm, taking in the beauty of colour, smells and the people that make it a farm. Allow some time for a lite bite or dessert at The Village at Wheelocks before a look in the cabins supporting local producers or a stroll through the woods. Alternatively, find some time to stroll through bloom at Beechdale Garden Centre before a slice of cake and a cup of tea in the Wildflower Café.



History Lovers

Wexford is rich for history and the perfect destination for history lovers. Whether it’s history surrounding the story of John F. Kennedy at Kennedy Homestead, the happenings of Enniscorthy and it’s surrounding components like Enniscorthy Castle, Vinegar Hill and Oulart Hill or perhaps it’s Dunbrody Abbey’s story that has caught your attention, there’s certain to be something you’ll become enthralled in when it comes to Wexford’s story through time.

Take it outdoors with a trip to many of Wexford’s wonderful seaside villages. From crab fishing in Rosslare to indulgent fish restaurants on every corner of Kilmore Quay, among others like quaint village Courtown sparring the perfect place for an icecream on the harbour, there’s no place like Wexford’s seaside villages to feel refreshed, breathe that sea breeze and relax with loved ones after a leisurely stroll.
