holiday house in wexford

    any thoughts on whatsthe best area in wexford for a holiday house/caravan?
    have pretty much narrowed down to rosslare strand or blackwater/curracloe.

    rosslare strand seems to be a bit livelier all year round but the would the beaches up near blackwater/curracloe be better? would it be a bit dead around there outside the summer.

    have a couple of yooung kids so focus is on keeping them entertained but in an outdoorsie kind of way..

    Well Rosslare is livelier in the winter but Curralcoe would win hands down form, fantastic sandy beach with good clear safe water. Is close to Wexford town if the weather is bad, lovely wood running beside the beach as well so you can go for walks and cycles etc. Has an arcade and chipper that opens in the summer.

    PM me if you want to know anything else, will try and help

    Ya i live in Curracloe, in the winter its pretty much dead apart from the local village itself which can be fine at the weekend nights, mot much to do apart from the beach and as said "walks and cycling" and Wexford town is pretty close

    I got stung by a jellyfish in Curracloe. Seen a hell of a lot more out there too. One was about 1.5 feet across. I'm not kidding. Enjoy the holiday home! :D

    I would say curracloe. Went there when i was younger alot and they always had funfairs and arcades and the beach is lovely!

    Upside for Rosslare is better public transport.

    Ah but the beach is not as good and it had become overrun with holiday homes etc. Curracloe for the unspoilt beauty of it :)
