  • Really nice place to visit especially if its off season. Bring your camera or binoculars and make sure to be patient. The reception is lovely, it has a multimedia room with a small area for children, you can get tea, coffee or snacks, relax and enjoy the views or just use the toilets provided. There are observation turrets and the walking area is restricted as there is deep water, they do not want you to disturb nest or frighten the wildlife but if your patient then the wildlife will come to you. There are two large ponds beside the reception and your bound to get a view of wild birds, fowl or tiny finches of every color feeding . Its a great place to take photos or video and the sea wall is right beside the reserve so if your run out of thing to photograph then your bound to see fishing boats go in and out of Wexford harbor. Its free to visit and its suitable for elderly folk or families. Why not take a gander out to the reserve and see what you find for yourself. Enjoy
  • Wow fantastic meal, we all had steak cooked to perfection!! They even had kids steak and not a bite left! Friendly warm and welcoming.
  • Beautiful place to spend a few hours wandering around and taking in the beauty.
  • I visit in the winter months to see birds use the reserve it's very good .👍🐤🐦.
  • Saw several different bird species, and an Irish hare gave us a show around the pond at the visitor centre.
