Spring Trails

Raven Point Wood

Park up at the Raven Wood car park and explore the beautiful woodland walkway before emerging out onto the stunning white sandy beach. The fields to the west are the North Slob lands, home to many important species of birds. If you are doing this walk during the winter months, you might spot all the geese from the North Slob flying out to roost on sandbanks in Wexford Harbour. The beautiful blue flag beach at Curracloe is definitely the highlight of this beach walk.

 

Forth Mountain

Just outside of Wexford town is the 235m Forth Mountain. It is the only mountain in Ireland made up of 500-600 million-year-old rock. It played an integral part in the 1798 Rebellion. Make sure to stop on Skeator Rock to take some pictures. From that look out, you’ll get panoramic views of the Wexford coastline include Rosslare, Our Lady’s Island, Saltee Islands, Hook Head lighthouse and across into Dunmore East and the Waterford estuary.
