Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Decided to drive out on the peninsula to the church and castle. Nice little spot with the 'leaning tower of Our Lady' being the most notable.

    Another golden sandy beach along the south east coast. You can access it via Morriscastle beach turn left and walk along. Great fishing spot lots of dog fish and plaice. Very clean and lots of space. Very narrow road driving down take care.

    Tuesday 2nd August and we took a stroll along this beautiful stretch of almost deserted beach. It is located on the East coast of Ireland in County Wexford between Arklow and Courtown.

    It sits in between the rocks and cliffs at both Clones Strand at one end and Saleen Strand at the other.

    The golden sand is peppered, in places, with pebbles and is washed by the lively Irish Sea. When we were here the sea was a bit rough and the waves were crashing. A few brave souls did battle with the waves and cold water.

    We did meet a number of people walking their dogs, great beach walks in either direction.

    Looking along the beach towards Saleen Strand we could see that the sand dunes were shored up by coastal erosion defenses, they had not yet reached the section of the beach where we were. Some of the dunes were in a bad state, there was a sign warning of collapsing sand dunes.

    This visit was a real trip down memory lane as we had family holiday home just over the dunes in Killbegnt.Many happy hours were spend here during childhood and teenage years.

    Excellent playground and very pleasant walk around the parkland make this a great family outing. The availability of good car parking, refreshments and toilets on-site make it ideal.

    This little park is hidden away. There is lots of parking nearby. (It's listed on Wexford County Council's website.) There is a lovely playground, picnic benches and seating, a safe path for toddlers and kids, a very modern public toilet (50 cent fee), a book depository, exercise machines and a beautiful dedication to the memory of Willie Redmond MP, who died in WW1. The trees have little labels to identify their species and I think the gravel square is for bowles.

    To the back of the old Gaol in Wexford, to the rear of the current county buildings, there is a lovely Republican Remembrance garden where there rebels were executed. You can still see the bullet holes in the prison wall where James Parle, John Creane and Patrick Hogan were shot for insurrection by the British in March 1923.
    There is across and plaque to these men and all the others who gave their lives in the struggle for Irish independance. Many trees have been planted in remembrance too and there are plenty of benches for you to sit on and contemplate.
    As far as I know it is open from March to September and there is no charge. It is well worth taking in the gaol too although it is not open for visitors and has been completely neglected, the exterior is still as striking as ever though.
    The garden is very well tended though and well worth the 10 minute or so walk from Main Street. Don't be confused though, the entrance is not the main one to county hall, it is around the corner by another minute or so.
