My sister and I escaped to the sunny South East for a mini getaway two weeks ago and we had the nicest time. 48 hours away from the hustle and bustle of city life is always a good idea and Wexford seemed

WINING & DINING
Le Baginbun – The nicest little lunch spot in Fethard. Le Baginbun is the sister property of Baginbun Lodge which is only across the road. They had lots of choice on their lunch menu so we were spoilt for choice. We shared a falafel starter (I have never had nicer falafels) and I have a chicken salad for my main. Really tasty dishes and generous portions too. A
The Gallery Restaurant – this restaurant is part of the hotel we were staying in so it was a perfect spot for our first night as we checked in late that evening. The menu had a really good choice of both traditional and modern cuisine so we were spoilt for choice. I ordered a steak dinner and we shared a chocolate dessert. The food was cooked to perfection, the atmosphere was cosy and the staff were really friendly. A really nice dining room and the bar had a good selection of drinks too. The staff very kindly whipped us
Il Primo Italian Restaurant – We dined in Il Primo on our last night. Italian food is a favourite of mine and the food did not disappoint. I had a really nice smoked salmon pasta dish with a glass of red. It was a beautiful meal overall and the restaurant was only a 5 minute drive from our hotel which was handy. If you’re staying in New Ross this place is worth checking out. Click here for more.
THINGS TO DO & SEE
Dunbrody Famine Ship
Our first stop on the Saturday was the Dunbrody Famine Ship. This is one of the premier tourist attractions in the South East of Ireland so we had to pop in for a tour.
Our tour guide was really friendly, chatty and informative, we got to see the ins and outs of the ship and the performers topped it all off. A really enjoyable tour overall. The tickets are reasonably priced too. Click here for more information on tours and ticket prices.
Located at the tip of the Hook peninsula, this is the oldest operational lighthouse in the world. We popped in for a guided tour of the lighthouse on the Sunday morning as we were in the area.
Our tour was just under an hour long and our tour guide Gillian was full of facts and figures so we
Sea Cave Kayaking
The Irish Experience offers an amazing and unique Sea Cave Kayaking Experience along the beautiful South East coastline of Ireland, taking in the very best Atlantic Ocean location of Ireland’s Ancient East. Sea Cave Kayaking had been on my to-do list for a good while so I couldn’t wait to get going. It really was a unique and exhilarating way to explore this magical coastline.
The sea cave kayaking experience was 3 hours long and this included 2.5 hours of paddle time in total. The sea caves and arches really were something else. We also stopped off at a hidden beach to
I decided to give energy therapy a go as I had never tried it before. I had my first Rising Star treatment at Creacon Wellness Retreat after lunch on
Scientists have proven that everything is energy. With humans and animals, energy fields operate inside our bodies (chakra system) and outside our bodies (auric system). When our energetic vibration decreases, dis-ease and imbalance can occur on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
The Rising Star treatment works by directing energy through your chakra system, working on the five elements; fire, water, air, earth
County Wexford really does have so much to offer. There are so many things to do and places to see. A huge thanks to Brandon House Hotel, The Irish Experience, Hook Lighthouse, Dunbrody Famine Ship, Creacon Wellness Retreat, Le Baginbun and Il Primo for having us. Such an enjoyable weekend in the
