La Dolce Vita

La Dolce Vita in Selskar is highly recommended. It serves primarily very good rustic Italian food using high quality Italian and Irish produce.

It is a great place to have lunch if you’re exploring the old Norman town of Wexford. You can also dine on the terrace in Selskar Square where a new sculpture of one of County Wexford greatest hurlers, Nicky Rackard, has just been erected.  

The restaurant is unfortunately only open for lunch except during the period of the Opera Festival when it also opens for pre and post opera supper.
