Gather around the pretty wood dining table with your loved ones as you delight in a delicious home-cooked meal, lovingly prepared in the traditional country-style kitchen with the help of the many electric appliances that lie within.

As you begin to feel yourself tire, pick yourself up and climb the staircase to the first floor, where you can retire to one of the two homely bedrooms, each appointed with an attractive double bed and an abundance of storage, and are served by a light and breezy bathroom hosting a spacious walk-in shower.

Make the most of warmer weather with drinks on the patio or soak up the sunshine as you lounge on the well-kept lawn, whilst indulging in a tasty picnic.

When you can just about tear yourself away from this humble abode, be sure to explore to centre of Wexford, where you can step back in time at the 12th century ruins of Selskar Abbey and learn of the town’s rich medieval history on a enthralling tour of the grounds, or stop by the West Gate Tower, one of the last 13th-century tollgates in the walls of the town.

Admire the grand architecture of the National Opera House, home to the iconic Wexford Opera Festival, or take a stroll down the historical Keyser's Lane and discover an abundance of quirky local stores and wonderful cafés that spill out onto the street.

Cross Wexford Bridge to Angels Harbour and Opera Grove, or continue along to Ardcavan Strand for a walk along the pebbled shores of Ardcavan Bay Beach.

Spot colourful birds and enchanting wildlife at the Wexford Wildfowl Reserve, or take in the breath-taking seascapes from soft sugary sands of Curracloe Beach.

Spend the afternoon at the living history museum of the Irish National Heritage Park and learn of life in ancient Ireland, or embark awe-inspiring hikes along the Three Rocks Trail and Edenvale Woods, discovering hidden gems such as Water Falls Castlebridge along the way.
