Wells House Tuesday, 30th July
Wells House and Gardens is a Victorian tudor gothic country house museum, located around 7 km outside of Kilmuckridge, County Wexford. It was designed by Daniel Robertson (of Powerscourt and Kilruddery House in County Wicklow and Johnstown Castle) in the 1830s. It was opened to the general public in July 2012 and is the most visited attraction in the county of Wexford, being named “Ireland’s Best Family Day Out” by Today FM in 2015. The house has extensive gardens, an animal farm, a cafe and a children’s playground. Archery and falconry are also practised. It is found on the R741 road, near the small village of Ballyedmond and about 18 km south of Gorey. It features as a suggested stop on the Ireland’s Ancient East touring area.
Wells House will kindly allow free access to you on presentation of your registrant’s badge, which you will receive when you check in at the festival.
