Wexford Town


The town of Wexford was founded over a thousand years ago by the Vikings, who first laid out its narrow streets and lanes.

Invading Normans built the Town Walls, of which a full kilometre stands today, including the dramatic Selskar Gate.

In 1649, Cromwell sacked the town, slaughtering 2,000 of its citizens, Kings, pirates, rebels and ghosts await you in this ancient town!
