    “No mention in listing that electricity requires coins to be fed into meter, shower alternates between hot and freezing cold, electric cooker is ancient, so called central heating is a plugged in heater linked to a timer switch, no upstairs bathroom.”

    Also the floor was dirty and a lot of the surfaces were sticky to the touch. Not a patch on other Sykes cottages we have stayed at.

The property

Set in the peaceful fishing village of Fethard-on-Sea, close to the Hook Peninsula in County Wexford is The Barn, a traditional converted farmhouse, resting within a courtyard beside the owner's home.

Offering a stunning holiday home, filled with character and traditional features, The Barn is ideal for a family wanting to explore the coast and multitude of sandy beaches along the Hook Peninsula.

Step inside this self-contained unit to find an open-plan living space boasting original stone features, as well as a well-equipped kitchen unit, where you can prepare home-cooked meals for the group, before winding down in the seating area on one of the inviting sofas for a family film night on the FreeSat TV.

Catch up on rest in one of three first-floor bedrooms; the master room is ideal for a family with young children, offering a double and bunk bed, along with a further double bedroom and single room, all sharing use of the family shower room, where you can start each day with a refreshing rinse.

Spend time in your enclosed patio garden, sitting back with a delicious morning coffee, and make use of the shared courtyard and barbecue to enjoy an alfresco dinner.

There is also an on-site laundry room with washer and dryer, should you need to clean up any sandy and salty clothes after a day at the beach.

The Barn is a fantastic family holiday home for a coastal break in County Wexford.

Hook Cottages

Just a short distance from the stunning Hook Peninsula in the fishing village of Fethard-On-Sea in southwest County Wexford are Hook Cottages, three character properties that form part of an 18th century, traditional stone farmhouse. Set around a courtyard with the owner's home, these delightful properties retain some original features, like old beams and stonework, as well as having their own enclosed gardens and shared use of a courtyard and barbecue. Fethard-on-Sea village centre is within walking distance and offers a host of amenities, pubs and restaurants, while the Hook Peninsula boasts a wealth of sandy beaches, an ancient lighthouse and watersport activities like diving, snorkelling and shore angling. There are many historical buildings within easy reach that are worth visiting, including Tintern Abbey with its walled garden, Dunbrody and Graiguenamanagh Medieval abbeys, while Duncannon houses a military and maritime museum. Walk the Wexford Coastal Path for picturesque coastal scenery; venture east towards Wexford to visit its 12th century abbey, magnificent opera house and 35-acre Irish National Heritage Park, while west brings you to Waterford, Ireland's oldest city, home to a Medieval museum, nature park and a 16th century castle set on a private island along the River Suir, surrounded by 310 acres of land. New Ross, which sits on the Wexford/Kilkenny border, is home to John F Kennedy Arboretum, with a collection of 4,500 trees from all over the world, along with a lake and idyllic hilltop views, the 12th century Dunbrody Abbey and its fantastic hedge maze, and the the Dunbrody Famine Ship. Within easy reach of a wealth of attractions and glorious sandy beaches, you will never be short of things to do from this excellent holiday base.

About the location


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.
