“The Michelin recommended Greenacre's restaurant is one of the most popular in the South East. It is located on the ground floor, surrounded by shelves of the world’s finest wines. The ambiance is friendly and relaxed - very popular with venue during Wexford Opera. The food is prepared under the watchful eye of local Chef Ritchie Trappe and as Wexford is both an agricultural and maritime hinterland, their supplies are sourced locally. There is an award winning wine list which has is the most extensive in the Country and offers both value, and outstanding quality. Greenacre's also has a spacious art gallery with contemporary Irish art and sculpture. It is part of The Greenacres Bistro and has regular exhibitions throughout the year. It is spread over 2 floors upstairs - a nice place to peruse on a wet day or just for a coffee. Excellent local cheese sold in the deli.”

“Delicious food and great service all-day, everyday. This is the closest place to us that serves the best food to suit all appetites. There is a bar and a restaurant, the food in both is excellent. We recommend booking a table for groups if it is a weekend, but you can eat at the bar with our a reservation. Just let us know if you want us to call them for you to book in advance.”

“The Rebellion of 1798, led by the United Irishmen, and based on the principles of the French Revolution of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity, was an attempt to achieve a democratic and equal Ireland. The Rebellion lasted from May to September 1798, and in County Wexford alone, some 20,000 people lost their lives in a four week period. The last major battle of the Rebellion, the Battle of Vinegar Hill, which took place on 21st June 1798, was the last major battle on Irish soil, The Rebellion was the start of a 125 year battle for Irish democracy and independence, that ended on 21st January 1919 with the meeting of the First Dáil (Irish Parliament) in Dublin. ”

“The cottages are overseen by a heritage committee made up of local people that have a keen interest in local heritage. The committee of 6 meet monthly to discuss and arrange activities and events that will take place in the cottages. A group of spinners and weavers meet in the cottages regularly. In the past a group of local entertainers gathered to participate in music, song and storytelling sessions at the cottages but due to popularity and constraints on space they had to move to a larger venue. This accrues on every third Monday every month. There is also the community gardens that is open to the public daily. The long term benefits would be to boost the local economy by attracting more visitors to the area. To revive an environmentally friendly traditional method of dying wool and gardening. To pass on the older traditions and methods of wool dying, spinning, weaving, butter making, breading making and gardening to younger generations and show how those skills and knowledge can be applied and used in today’s day to day living. ”
