Fabulous building behind an unassuming facade, host to world class opera during Wexford Opera Festival and other concerts during the year. Also houses a beautiful cafe “The House”which has great views over the town, well worth a visit for a morning coffee or lunch and to have a peek at inside of the Opera House.

Don’t be put off by the slightly boxy exterior of this hotel. It’s hugely popular with locals due to it’s beautiful location overlooking the water and the bar has consistently good food. Well worth the walk across Wexford bridge to get to, I’d recommend booking in advance on weekends or during peak season.
