County Wexford is one of Ireland's most popular places to visit, with many hours of sunshine and less rain than the rest of the Emerald Isle -- plus it's home to some wonderful beaches, rivers, quaint towns and villages and has an excellent reputation for water sports. The old viking Town of Wexford is located on the River Slaney and has a lot to offer tourists both in town and nearby.
In the town you can wander medieval lanes and stop by the ruins of Selskar Abbey. The town is known for being quite artsy, with many galleries and boutiques.
Top places to visit in Wexford County include the birthplace of John F Kennedy's grandfather, The Kennedy Homestaed, the Farmhouse in Dungastown. Visitors also love touring the working farms such as Ballycross Apple Farm and Wexford Lavender Farm. Head to Hook Lighthouse and see the oldest working lighthouse in the world! The peninsula here is also a great starting point to explore the unspoiled coast and spot wildlife (whales and dolphin watching is a popular past time). Find time to catch a performance at the National Opera House of Ireland in town before finishing your day with a trip to one of the many Irish pubs for a pint of Guinness beer.
Visit during the Wexford Opera Festival in Autumn for 12 days of rare performances. The summer in general is the best time to visit Wexford.
