Cycling

Walkers and cyclists, Wexford offers many exciting and varied routes for you to discover. Meandering and undulating routes link towns, villages, historical sites, country pubs and accommodation, coastal paths and hill climbs. Stretching over 200km/125 miles, coastal walks are plentiful in Wexford. They can include shore walks or tracks along our reclaimed slob-lands. The beaches are sand and shingle based, the cliffs are formed from clay deposits and rocky outcrops. For the more up-hill enthusiast, Mount Leinster and the Black Stairs are an enjoyable day's hiking or biking. Starting from Kildavin near Bunclody, forest tracks offer easy access. Mount Leinster is the highest point and is a favourite spot for hang-gliders when conditions prevail.

The South East Coastal Drive is a new sign posted route stretching from Wexford Town through Kilmore Quay, Carrig-an Bannow, Fethard, Hook and Ballyhack ending at Ardmore in County Waterford.

Carrickbyrne Hill 5 km trail through a forest of mainly coniferous trees. Visit the encampment and Evoy's forge enroute to the summit with its beautiful viewing point.
