The property

The village of Ballycanew is home to a selection of shops and pubs and is a superb base for exploring the Sunny South East with endless beaches to sample at Courtown, Curracloe and Poulshone to name but a few. Why not try a spot of sailing or windsurfing, or if your sea legs are not too good you can always visit Ferns Castle or wander one of the many walking trails in the area? Wells House and Gardens is set just a five minute drive away and is a wonderful, historical house to visit, with forest walks, a children’s playground, archery and craft shops. A trip to the Avoca Woollen Mills and the stunning lakes at Glendalough in County Wicklow are also a must during your stay here. For sea, sand and Sunny South East culture, this charming cottage is the perfect choice! This delightful, semi-detached cottage, situated beside a working farm and the owner’s home, is found near Ballycanew, a village in County Wexford. Bright and welcoming, the cottage has ample space for two couples, a family or even a group of friends whilst they explore the Sunny South East of the Emerald Isle. Other than one step at the back door and a couple more at the front, the accommodation is set solely over the ground floor; there are two double bedrooms, one single room and a shower room, along with a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with a woodburning stove. This beautiful corner of Ireland is great for walking enthusiasts, with beautiful undulating countryside and rugged, unspoilt coastline. After a day on your feet, Ash Drive House is the perfect retreat to return to; you can all gather round the dining table and enjoy a tasty home-cooked meal whilst reminiscing over the day’s adventures, or snuggle by the woodburner and relax with a bit of TV. When the sun is shining, step out into the garden and soak up the sunshine while the kids run around and play. A short drive away, there are plenty of amenities to keep you happy in Ballycanew! The village has several shops and pubs, while Enniscorthy, the second largest town in Wexford, is less than half an hour drive away. If you don’t fancy walking, you can spend a day on the beach at Courtown, Curaccloe or Poulshone, or try windsurfing and sailing! Wells House and Gardens is a fantastic destination for a day out, for all the family. There is a woodland walk, a children’s play park, as well as archery and craft shops. Pack a picnic and explore the Wicklow Mountains National Park for the day, or discover the wildlife and beautiful lakes at Glendalough. A wonderful holiday base, perfect for exploring this magical area of Ireland.
