    Cheers! Id seen that website just before I headed off.
    I actually just stayed on for the weekend in the hotel near the centre. Tonnes of nice food and plenty of chillin out in the leisure centre and the pool.

    Wexford town was completely quiet on sunday night so we headed for dinner in a chinese near the train station. It was soo excellent.

    All in all, an excellent weekend!
