Morriscastle is perfectly located in the Sunny South East of the Country beside the best beach in Ireland for fishing, swimming & sand-castling but for times that you may want to venture off the Park, we’re also very lucky to be located in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East where history, heritage, stories, activities and culture surround us. Morriscastle sits within 20 minutes drive from Gorey, Enniscorthy and Wexford towns. Kilmuckridge Village is only 3km from Morriscastle where there are shops, pubs, churches and the best cafe [Kates] in the county!

Wexford town has a huge attraction for history enthusiasts – this is the National Heritage Park located just outside the town. It’s a fun and educational way to revisit the history of Ireland in an interactive and memorable way. Totally worth a visit. Further on down the County you can find the oldest working Lighthouse in the world at Hook Head, the amazing Dunbrody Famine Ship in New Ross and JFK Park and Arboretum, all only an hour away from Morriscastle!
