Sea views and beach are spectacular, a really must see.. The village is a delight and the pubs/restaurants very welcoming. Wexford is only 15 mins away for shopping etc. We recommend staying at this property and enjoying the beautiful Curracloe.

Her attention to detail was amazing. The house is very well appointed, looked after and perfect for upto 8 people. It is a lovely area to explore. Though there is a wind farm near by at no time was it even noticeable once you drove into 'The Grove' There are good beaches around and the weather was brilliant practically throughout The closest supermarket is about 4 miles away but others do deliver. Great for a relaxed holiday, beach walking, horse riding (though didn't do it saw some stables and a few out riding) Dublin is about 90 minutes away. The Wicklow national park is about an hour and Waterford is about 45 min. All great for day trips Thank you Edel for a very nice holiday
