Irish Adventure

Had a good drive from Sussex to St David’s,  arrived in St David’s in pouring rain and high wind,  so got a bit wet setting up!

The caravan club site at St David’s was in a beautiful area and we awoke next morning to a lovely sunny day, after a windy night in the caravan!

We drove the half hour to Fishguard Port, where again the sun was out . We were made very welcome by the two ladies running the delightful cafe at the port.

We had a cup of coffee sitting outside chatting to other Caravanners.

We duly were asked to get back into the car ready for boarding the ferry. All very simple and very well organised.

We had an amazing crossing, a slight swell of one and a half metres, so nothing too serious.

We arrived in Rosslare and disembarked the ferry and drove to Wexford to the Ferry bank caravanning and camping park, it took about half an hour from the ferry The site is owned apparently by the local council and I have to say the only thing going for it is the location and its proximity to Rosslare port.

The site could do with some serious investment and has a bit of a run down feeling, it is not cheap to stay here and the shower blocks are cold and cost €2 for a timed shower. For three nights for us which is a caravan, car, and two adults, it is €92, if you want showers etc all extra!

The location is great as you can walk into town within about 15 minutes depending of course how fast you walk!

There are numerous cafes and restaurants, there is also a pub/hotel just off the perimeter of the caravan park which we ate in on our first night, a good Irish welcome and stacks of good food . My wife had chicken and it was accompanied by a bowl of 9 large potatoes!

We move on to Tramore tomorrow….
