Wexford’s fishing industry is a huge part of our local economy and culture.


The fresh fish caught off the Wexford coast can be sent as far as Germany, Switzerland and Austria. So, on this tour you’ll take the scenic coastal route taking in some of Wexford’s little fishing villages. 



You will visit Mick Walsh at his home in the seaside village of Ballyhack. Here Mick will show you the traditional methods used to smoke and fillet fish and how independent fishmongers sell fish from Kilmore Quay every day. You’ll enjoy a delicious seafood lunch and at the end of the day, you’ll climb to the top of Hook Lighthouse and survey the coastline you’ve spent the day exploring.
