    “Lovely peaceful modern country cottage”

    We planned to stay for just three nights but enjoyed it so much that we ended up staying for ten! County Wexford is a truly beautiful part of Ireland and the Tacumshane area is a jewel of a place. Wonderful landscapes, deserted beaches and plenty of birds and other wildlife. Wagtail Cottage is a tastefully renovated barn within a quiet rural farm complex. Two other barns are available to rent at the same site, as is the farmhouse itself. So the whole unit can accommodate around 25 people - great for a party or a big family getaway. The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable and equipped with all 'mod cons'. The bed was deliciously cosy and offered quiet calmness for a refreshing sleep. The central heating system was fast and efficient and provided plenty of hot water to fill the bath tub. After an initial problem on the evening of arrival, the WiFi worked seamlessly for the following ten days. The hosts (Annabel and Brian) offered truly impeccable customer service throughout. Nothing was too much trouble. Moreover, their local knowledge and advice really did enhance our stay. In summary, an idyllic rural retreat equipped with everything you need for a fabulous stay. Highly Recommended! Thank you.

Fence Farm Cottages

Three lavish cottages joined together in a wonderful restored stone-built barn set in the County Wexford village of Tacumshane in Ireland. The property is in close proximity to Nearby Carne and Our Lady's Island. These contemporary cottages have a large garden area to share, making it family friendly, as well as a lockable door separating the two apartments, giving you the choice to have a huge open plan cottage or two separate living areas. These are three of our most stylish, contemporary self-catering cottages. All are beautifully furnished in a classy modern way, with granite worktops, contemporary furniture, big comfortable sofas,cosy and large bedrooms and an abundance of fresh wooden decor. The studio despite being compact has all that you need for a relaxing holiday at an easy reach, fantastically. The cottages have a shared garden area, with fashionable furniture and an enormous lawned area, perfect to sit and relax with a morning coffee or evening glass of wine whilst the children play. These cottages are set in the charming Irish town of Tacumshane, where Ireland's oldest serving windmill stands. Tacumshane is very popular with anglers and bird watchers at the town's lake. There are a number of golf courses nearby and an easily accessible coastal path. Further afield from Tacumshane is Kilmore Quay, a fishing village with many lakes and various beautiful sandy beaches. The county town of Wexford is less than 10 miles away, offering plenty of shops, pubs and eateries.

About the location


Wexford 9 miles.

The small village of Tacumshane in County Wexford has a pub and restaurant, The Millhouse, and is home to the Republic of Ireland's only surviving windmill. Built in 1846, the timber used is thought to be beach driftwood or wood from the shipwrecks that were all too common in this coastal region. The windmill is now designated a national monument. This part of County Wexford has plenty on offer - Tacumshane Lake is a favourite with anglers and birdwatchers, there are many golf courses, and the coastal walking path is easily reached. Kilmore Quay fishing village is a few miles down the road, and there are some lovely beaches, ideal for relaxing and playing on the sand. The county town of Wexford is under 10 miles away, and offers plenty of amenities including shops, bars and good restaurants.
