    “We have just spent one of the most relaxing holidays in Ireland ever.”

    One you get settled in the upstairs lounge, time just stops. The harbour life is ever changing , yet very little happens. It is most bizarre yet intriguing. I kept taking more and more photos and comparing them for the changes. The fishermen seem to work at a leisurely pace but the work seems to get effortly done. The house has everything you could need ( I even managed to do some baking !! ). The beds were super comfortable and the quilts were well matched to the weather. The surrounding area ...

    One you get settled in the upstairs lounge, time just stops. The harbour life is ever changing , yet very little happens. It is most bizarre yet intriguing. I kept taking more and more photos and comparing them for the changes. The fishermen seem to work at a leisurely pace but the work seems to get effortly done. The house has everything you could need ( I even managed to do some baking !! ). The beds were super comfortable and the quilts were well matched to the weather. The surrounding area has lots to offer but with Slade been on a peninsular, every outing meant travelling the same roads every day, a small price to pay though. We thoroughly enjoyed our week away at Slade and would love to return again .

Due to its incredible location on the Hook Head Peninsula, this Fethard-on-Sea cottage is perfect for sea lovers and even faces the fishing harbour and the ruins of Slade Castle.

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.
