The property

This gorgeous terraced cottage is a gem of a holiday home. It is full of character and is tastefully decorated. It is located in an enviable location in the peaceful fishing village of Slade in Co. Wexford. This is an ideal base for a family or group of friends to unwind or take on the many adventures the area has to offer. You can sit back, relax and observe the activities of the harbour from your front door and take in the stunning sea views, a nicer location you could not ask for to unwind. If walking is on the menu, you can take the fabulous cliff walk of the Hook Peninsula and visit one of the world's oldest, intact & operational lighthouses.
You will not be short of things to do in the area. Enjoy a traditional family day on one of our many beaches. With footie golf, crazy golf, hedge mazes & woodland walks all available on the peninsula, you will hear no one complaining of being bored! Why not soak up some of Ireland's history and visit some of the many historic sites in the area, Tintern Abbey, Dunbrody Abbey, The Hook lighthouse, Dunbrody Famine ship, Duncannon Fort and Kennedy Homestead, all nearby waiting for you to explore. If you are the adventure type, the Hook peninsula does not disappoint, with kite surfing, kayaking & scuba diving all on offer near by. If you prefer it at a more leisurely pace, you can enjoy the scenery via horseback. After the day's adventure you will come back to your comfortable cottage, which boasts a cosy sitting room with open fire, a well equipped kitchen to cook up a meal. There is one double room down stairs along with family bathroom. A further two bedrooms upstairs, one double and one twin.

About the location

FETHARD-ON-SEA, COUNTY WEXFORD

Duncannon 5.5 miles; New Ross 17 miles; Waterford 31.5 miles.

Fethard-on-Sea is a village nestling to the east of the Hook Peninsula, in the south-west of lovely County Wexford. Fethard-on-Sea has a colourful history, including the lifeboat tragedy of 1914, and the Fethard-on-Sea Boycott, which has been immortalised in print and on film. Now a quiet fishing and holiday village, Fethard makes a great base to enjoy sandy beaches, shops and pubs. The Hook Peninsula continues to attract visitors due to the ancient lighthouse and a multitude of beaches. There is a beach a day for a fortnight on the Peninsula, plus there are a variety of watersports, such as diving, snorkelling and shore angling, along with painting and birdwatching. There are many interesting historical sites to visit, such as Tintern Abbey with its walled garden, guided tour and forest walk and medieval abbeys in Dunbrody and Graiguenamanagh, plus the star shaped Elizabethan Fort at Duncannon houses a military and maritime museum, and The Cockleshell Art Gallery. Head up to New Ross and visit the JFK Arboretum or the Dunbrody Famine Ship, or travel over to Waterford in the west or Wexford in the east to take in all they have to offer, from the Wexford Opera House, Johnstown Castle and The Heritage Park to Waterford Castle and Waterford Crystal.
