Caravan Holiday in Ireland

We continue our Irish travels, as I have mentioned before we were staying at Ferrybank caravan and camping park on the out skirts of Wexford, as it was a bank holiday here in Ireland as well as the UK. the site became very full, and I have to say the Irish folk have made us very welcome, we took a drive down to Kilmore Quay which is a beautiful village and well worth a visit, we had a cup of tea in the local cafe and all the customers and owners made us very welcome and the large pot of tea was exceptionally good value. We even thought our business had expanded as saw a restaurant called Coast!! Regretfully at the time of our visit it was closed. In the evening we walked into Wexford for a dinner in a local restaurant called Greenacres where the food was excellent and the ambience great, the waiter was called Sean and was so attentive and caring, well worth the money for the experience, we then discovered Sean came from that great city in the U.K. called Birmingham, but a lot of his family lived in Wexford. Also today we visited the Irish National heritage park, which is an experience not to miss, a visit is a must if you wish to learn about the history of Ireland, as there are examples of middle Stone Age campsites, New Stone Age farmstead, megalithic Tomb, Bronze Age graves right through to a Viking boat yard. You will spend at least two hours walking around.

Today we packed up and sadly left Wexford to travel down to Tramore where we are staying at Newtown Cove Caravan Park, Tramore is a very lively town with, fun fairs, and the full seaside experience, however if you fancy
somewhere quieter Dunmore East is well worth a visit. A fishing village with a beautiful harbour. It has a beautiful working harbour which you are able to have a walk around provided you take great care.

Sunday 6th of May
Since we have arrived there had been a sea mist, so as a result it is a bit cold. Not to be out done we went for a walk from the caravan site through to Tramore via the coastal route. We met numerous people , from an elderly lady who was in tears as her elderly dog had been diagnosed with cancer and she was taking him for a last walk, then we met Bart who was having a bar b que in one of the communal bar b que spots. We had a chat with a gentleman who was a member of the Guillamene swimming club, he invited us down to meet other members some of whom swim everyday of the year. Historically in this particular cove it was a men only club but obviously that has now changed. In Victorian times there was a men’s cove where they all swam from and another cove where the ladies swam from. The picture of the gentleman about to dive off swims every day and is 75! If any of you are considering a caravan holiday in this part of Ireland, it is worth considering a visit, as I do not think you will be disappointed.
