IrelandWelcome to our page of information, attractions and places of interest around Wexford. The Wexford hotels listed below are either in the town or we have given a rough guide as to how far they are from Wexford. The Republic of Ireland is bound to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east is the Irish Sea which reconnects to the ocean via the southwest with St. George's Channel and the Celtic Sea. The Republic of Ireland has 26 counties, and five cities — Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford. The west-coast of Ireland features cliffs, hills and low mountains. The centre of the country is flat with large areas of bogland. We hope you enjoy your stay and find your ideal accommodation from our list of Wexford hotels.

Wexford is the county town of County Wexford. It is situated near the south-eastern tip of Ireland, close to Rosslare Europort. Wexford lies on the south side of Wexford Harbour, the estuary of the River Slaney. The town was founded by the Vikings in about 800 AD. A modern bridge connects Wexford town with the northern part of the county. It is one of the longest bridges in Ireland. In the early 20th century, Wexford was a poor town, with few attractions to offer a visitor. The fortunes of the town started to change in the 1950's, the institution of the Wexford Opera Festival playing a part. The festival became world renowned, and many young international singers started their careers singing in Wexford. The festival now runs for three weeks at the end of October.
