Kilmore Quay – Small village, big heart
It’s little wonder Kilmore Quay became a fishing port. Its location at the end of a peninsula sees it reach out toward the Salted Islands, it’s protected by a rocky promontory to the West and a long sandbar, known as St. Patrick’s Bridge, to the East.
Right across the road from The Wooden House, there’s a golden sandy beach about 250 metres in length. Less than ten minutes’ walk, on the other side of the Harbour, the golden sands stretch on for 12km to the west.
Once a year, the village holds one of its most famous events: the Seafood Festival. Taking place in July, it celebrates the fact that County Wexford holds one of the best seafood in all of Ireland and it does it in the best way: bringing together local seafood through a variety of events and tastings over the weekend. A fabulous couple of days for all the family in a beautiful, scenic location.
Trawlers have fished from Kilmore Quay for centuries but just over a century ago amateur anglers began to come here to cast from the beach or from hired boats. In the years since, Kilmore Quay has become a much-loved holiday destination, welcoming families, couples and friends from across Ireland and from the UK and France via the Rosslare Ferry, just 30 minutes away.
A small village full of natural beauty and Irish kindness: that’s Kilmore Quay. And the newly refurbished Wooden House Bar, Restaurant & Apartments puts you at the heart of that welcome.
