  • “A lovely little house in a beautiful part of Ireland.”

    - Mrs Embley, September 2021

The property

Enjoying an enviable position, close to the lovely village of Fethard-On-Sea, which rests to the east of the Hook Peninsula, in the south-west of County Wexford is Glen Gable.

Approached via a tree-lined driveway and set within one acre of private grounds, this self-catering cottage offers an idyllic base for you and your loved ones to explore this stunning part of Ireland.

Inside the sitting room, picture windows affords a constant connection with the countryside beyond, whilst the woodburning stove is the focal feature of the room, setting a cosy ambiance as you curl up on the sofa and delve into a good book or browse the channels of the TV to unwind.

Take the door and discover the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where solid wooden floors lie beneath the country-style cabinets and the quality appliances that will assist you in cooking up culinary delights.

Climb the spiral staircase to find your sleeping quarters, comprising of the master suite with a plush king-size bed, a twin bedroom and a single bedroom, all three enjoying a home from home ambiance and pretty views of the garden to admire each morning.

Concluding the interior of the cottage is the family bathroom, boasting a shower over bath, so that you can choose how best to prepare for your day.

The garden has been wonderfully designed as an extension of the house itself, with a patio area to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining and a lawn area to meander, or pay a visit to the cottage owners, who are always on hand to offer advice on local attractions.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings as you venture into the attractive seaside village of Fethard-on-Sea, where you will find a plethora of places to eat and drink, as well as shops to explore before heading further afield to find the local beaches and coves.

Baginbun Beach is close by, where you can choose to walk along the shore, soak up the sunshine or take a refreshing dip in the clean waters, alternatively travel further along the peninsula towards Hook Lighthouse and stop off at the beaches of Patrick's Bay, Boyce's Bay and Sandeel Beach.

Head in the other direction to uncover some historical landmarks including the remains of the 13th century, Tintern Abbey and Duncannon Fort, or marvel at the beauty of Colclough Walled Garden, a restored 1800s Georgian attraction.

If you are feeling adventurous, take the ferry from the nearby village of Ballyhack to spend the afternoon in Waterford, the oldest city in Ireland, where you will find Reginald’s Tower, a circa-1003 fortification and the interesting Waterford Museum of Treasures, home to a collection of local archaeological finds.

With so much to see and do, Glen Gable promises to be an outstanding retreat for the whole family.

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.
