The Stable Conversion is adjacent to our traditional South Wexford 19C. stone-built farmhouse & pottery, on one hectare of arable land, protected from the road by a 'bawn' or courtyard. It is bright, spacious, airy and brand new!
Our orchard, garden, pond, studio shop and bird-watching hide are freely available to guests. Workshop, office, study & storage spaces off limits.
Living on the property we are always happy to meet new people, talk about our work, and advise on local attractions and amenities.
In Sammy's of Duncormick, our local thatched traditional pub, occasional trad. musicians and constant storytellers are part of the furniture. Late at night the silence and the stars are among the things we value most.
There is little or no public transport so a private vehicle is essential. Parking is not an issue. We can collect and return visitors from/to Wexford bus & train services by prior arrangement at the start and end of the visit.
Secure parking is available in the yard or 'bawn'fronting the apartment. Guests are welcome to access the orchard (complete with living willow dome) behind the apartment, which offers a degree of privacy, for relaxation at any time. A clothes-drying rack is provided and may be sited in this area for drying washing out of doors. Dryer access by arrangement.

My husband Ultan and I have lived in South Wexford for over 17 years. He is a social Historian and I am a Potter. We share a love of gardening. We keep a few ducks and hens and grow some fruit and vegetables. Each year we pick gorse and elderflower and make wine for the coming winter as well as pressing our own apple juice. If you wish to stay with us here we offer a range of activities such as pottery classes and historical tours of the area. We also host workshops throughout the year for anything from learning to build your own cob oven to weaving a willow dome for your garden! We read a lot in winter while summer evenings are spent outdoors enjoying the beautiful sunny South East weather. We also enjoy watching films and visiting our local pub which often hosts live music and even plays! We are looking forward to meeting new and interesting people - having been keen to travel and explore the world throughout our lives we are always open to new cultures and experiences. Hope to see you soon!
