    “We really enjoyed our stay at South Beach!”

    The location of the house was perfect for our needs, with the beach just a 5 minute walk away and the house was very comfortable. Thanks.

The property

Set in the pristine coastal village of Duncannon in County Wexford, gazing out upon the shimmering waters of Muir Cheilteach, rests the charming, three-bedroom holiday home of South Beach.

With private driveway parking for one car, front and rear garden spaces, and a collection of well-presented interiors, this delightful property welcomes a family or group of seven friends sharing, searching for a relaxing, self-catered escape in an idyllic Irish setting.

Park up out front, taking a brief moment to soak in brilliant sea views before stepping into your lovely new home-from-home.

Inside, be charmed by an array of warm, welcoming living spaces, consisting of a well-equipped kitchen/diner where you and your loved ones can gather to prepare and savour home-cooked meals, and a sitting room with plush seating, an elegant woodburning stove, and a sleek Smart TV.

When the sun is shining, head outdoors with a glass of your favourite vintage to take a seat on the enclosed patio, raising a glass to toast your tranquil getaway.

When sleep calls, refresh with a rejuvenating shower or a dip in the bath on your way to settling for a well-needed rest in one of the three bedrooms, including a ground-floor double with accompanying en-suite.

If you can tear yourself from your peaceful new lodgings, head out on foot to explore more of your local village.

A brief stroll into Duncannon will bring you to the An Post Duncannon, which sells homely essentials, as well as the Roches Bar & Restaurant where you can tuck into a hearty Irish meal whenever you fancy a break from cooking.

You'll also find the ancient site of Duncannon Fort during your ambling, a truly unmissable historic landmark, whilst an afternoon walk along Duncannon Beach is also a must.

Further afield, on a southward drive along the coast you will find Dollar Bay in Killoggin, the 14th-century setting of Loftus Hall in New Ross, and Hook Lighthouse in Churchtown, cited as the world's oldest operational lighthouse!

A drive north will take you to Ballyhack Harbour, Dunbrody Abbey, and the famous John F Kennedy Arboretum and The Kennedy Homestead.

All of this and more is yours to enjoy when you book a stay at South Beach.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of €100.
