How to spend a week in Wexford, Ireland


I like travelling (as do most of us) and usually when I travel, I like to get my money's worth. I have a filled pack itinerary with trips to museums, city tours, boat rides and countless excursions. Every minute is planned out as to not waste the day. But what I've come to realise is that sometimes it's just nice to take some time of and do nothing and that's exactly what I did for my trip to Wexford and I enjoyed every moment of it. 

Just spending time with the people you're with (in this instance - family). Enjoying their company and building relationships. Taking in the scenery and emerging yourself in the culture without going overboard and making the whole experience too cumbersome. Eating (new and/or) good food (my favourite) and getting a well deserved break from this crazy thing we call life.

A full week of rest just soaking in the sun, sangrias and daiquiris all day and just the right amount of movement to keep me active.

This is my second time in Wexford and it's gradually growing on me. I think the weather played an important part this time round. A trip to the countryside felt like a week in Spain. It was absolutely beautiful. The last time I was in Wexford, it rained 70% of the time which kept me housebound most of the time. I was stuck in with no internet, forced to play board games all day (can't even remember the last time I played Monopoly before then) and count cows (well the cows were still there this time round but that's besides the point).

This time was slightly different. Spent majority of the time relaxing at the beach with family, taking long walks and long drives along the beautiful coast. Memories that are worth cherishing forever. So here are a few pictures from my trip that I wanted to share (more on my instagram page) and if you're keen on visiting Wexford, note down a few places I've mentioned further down.
Duncanon Beach (other beaches to visit are Rosslare Strand, Curracloe, Ballymoney, Kilmore Quay)
Hook Lighthouse & Heritage Centre (you can take a tour all the way to the top of the light house or enjoy a beautiful hike along the coast. Been there twice so far and loved it both times)
I've been wanting to go on the High Ropes for quite some time now and really glad I got the chance to (although it didn't seem like it at the time). I have a massive fear of heights (amongst other things) and was shitting myself all the way through. Regretted it halfway in but I can say now (that it's over lol) that it was the best activity I did on the trip.
Outdoor Adventures @ IOAC (High Ropes, Kayaking, Archery, Target Shooting, Raft Building, Airsoft)
Took a Ferry (my first time ever!) to Waterford Town Centre. So many activities to do down there. My favourite was the Virtual Viking Tour. Absolutely brilliant!
Waterford Crystal (99.9% of the items here were above my tax bracket but they were sure nice to look at)
