Weekend Wonders for  #NorthWexford 

Local Blogger Sinead from Bumbles of Rice described her current energy levels as “Septembered” so our recommendations for this weekend are very much for a slow and easy weekend with a little bit of downtime and energy renewal for all with some treats and good times added in! 




Get your green fingers out!

Without a doubt you rarely leave the amazing Springmount Garden Centre just outside Gorey without a smile on your face and something delightful that is going to continue that smile for months if not years to come!

The super helpful team can certainly help with advise on planting for next year or putting your garden to bed for the winter months and you can also enjoy coffee and treats from their onsite cafe!

A great way to pass a weekend morning!


A little bit of fun can go a long way in raising spirits so grab the family, of all generations and set the challenge of a game of crazy golf in what is without doubt the most fun crazy golf course for miles!

Pirate’s Cove in Courtown always brings a smile to everyone’s face with skill, patience and good humour needed to complete this 18 hole mini golf pirate themed course!  Need more – there’s also 10 Pin Bowling, Electric children’s Go-karts (max. speed 9km/h), a Games Arcade and our Spinning Compass Casino so regardless of the weather fun is guaranteed!

You know the rule – Losers buy the ice-creams!

Tour Tara Hill

Offering unrivaled views Tara Hill is a firm favourite for Sunday strolls in North Wexford, on a clear day the coastline of Wexford and Wicklow is absolutely breathtaking!!  

Choose the Red Slí an tSuaimhnais trail with plenty of car parking options close to the village leading you to quaint country lane that award you stunning views of the coastline and echoes of our past with a 1798 cemetery.

If you are feeling more energetic try the Blue Slí na n-Óg trail where you will pass more of stories of our past with the remains of a famine village, Soldier’s Hollow, Table Rock and on the summit, the cairn. This cairn has the crow’s-foot mark showing it was part of a military survey, using its height to provide possible defence in times of invasion.  Mount Snowdon in Wales can be seen from the summit so let’s hope for another glorious weekend of sunshine like we have been enjoying!

We are so fortunate to have our amazing range of restaurants in Gorey and for foodies everywhere, Table Forty One‘s Michelin Bib Gourmand plaque on Main St is a true delight! 

Gorey native Andrew Duncan has a new seasonal menu featuring the finest of local produce and their signature local Macamore Buffalo Fillet Steaks & Irish Hereford Fillet Steaks with Smoked Bacon Jam & Portobello Mushroom!
