General

  • Well-maintained and friendly site with spectacular views of Bannow Bay
  • Horse and pony trekking available from the site
  • Dog-friendly setting a 45-minute drive from ferries at Rosslare

Apart from winning the lottery, there probably aren't many things more blissful than a horsey canter along an Irish beach. If this too is your idea of what you'd do on any hol, you're well placed to sort it at Wexford's Roches Campervan and Campsite: it's right on the Bannow estuary and the site owners run a horse and pony trekking centre alongside their working dairy farm.

You might not be able to imagine many views more blissful than over the sea from Roches either – perhaps a view of a winning lottery ticket...? And the site also has direct access to the bay: it's in the sunny south east of Ireland with loads of beaches and historical sites nearby, and kayak hire is available on site.

Base yourself here for fab flat and bass fishing in the estuary too, and walks along it, and splendid Wexford beaches, and old old sites like Tintern Abbey and the Clonmines castles... Pubs, a chemist, two supermarkets, a tyre centre and hair salons are at the local village of Wellingtonbridge a short drive away.

Roches has a shower and toilet block, internet access, charging facilities and chemical disposal. Barbecues and campfires are allowed, but if you're too blissed out/knackered after your horse ride to sort supper, trot along to one of the several nearby pubs serving tasty feed – trad Irish music sessions are often on the menu too. Music is also available on site at weekends in June, July and August, with midweek karaoke for the kids.

The site is 45 minutes from Rosslare if you're off to/from Europe and want an overnight stay.

Please note

A charge of €2.00 (£1.78) applies for the use of the shower.

Basic, handy for the ferry, stunning views over the estuary and fields10/08/2022

    Beautiful location. Handy for ferry. Coffee shop, fast food and bar. Good value for money.

    Disliked: 

    We stayed for 1 night after catching the ferry. The hard standing electric pitch was pretty level but it felt like it was a car park, with a very dusty surface, meaning you did not want to unpack. Fine if you were on a stop over but not if you wanted to stay more nights.

    Perhaps because many people were using it as a stop over the vans here were crammed in, barely 3m apart, with the immediate frontage used as a turning circle for delivery vehicles and visitors.

    In contrast, the grass pitches had decent spacing and electric. Two pretty decent toilet/shower units were handy for this part of the site but were too few for the number of visitors. Although cleaned very regularly, the loose dirt surface around the block quickly ensured the floors became filthy. If there had been a mop handy this could have been easily resolved.

    Litter, lots of it on the scenic walk, easily fixed.

    Lovely atmosphere, very helpful and friendly owners and some nice added features on site like the chipper van, coffee Dock and live music.

    Disliked: 

    Our pitch by the waterside was quite slanted so look for a pitch away from the water side as they were level.

  • Liked: 

    Fab views from the camp site and music in the evenings. You can bring your pet also.

    Disliked: 

    Very poor toilet facilities, it was a busy weekend with large numbers on site and 4 toilets to share between men and women with easily 200 people on site requiring. U had two more toilets but a shower was with these. Long que to get access to them. Not a nice experience first thing in the morning with kids crying as they needed use urgently. Cleaning toilets at peak time did not help either. I would not return for this reason. 3 showers on site was poor also. As this was a very busy camp site.

    Nowhere to conveniently empty toilet cassette. Difficult to take on water as tap in an awkward position. Had to do trips with a bottle. Very slopey so needed levelling chocks. Toilet a long walk uphill from where we pitched so tough for anyone with mobility issues

  • Clonmines, Wellingtonbridge, Wexford, Co. Wexford, Republic of Ireland, Y35 R9P9
  • Timezone Europe/Dublin GMT (GMT+01:00)   GPS 52.2516°N 6.7694°W

Directions


The site is 30 kilometres from Rosslare Europort. Out the the R733 follow Wellingtonbridge. 5 kilometres from Wellingtonbridge follow Clonmines to the site.
The campsite is 150 kilometres from Dublin airport and Cork city. There is bus from Dublin airport every hour to Wexford.

Local attractions

The ruin of 13th-century Tintern Abbey (not the Wordsworth one) is one of many old sites to see in Co Wexford and its surrounds. See also Hook Lighthouse at nearby Hook Head, the oldest working lighthouse in the world, and 16th-century Duncannon Fort with its maritime museum.

Several towns and villages are around Bannow Bay (although do go fishing first): pedal or potter around the likes of Saltmills, Newtown, Ballygow, Ballyowen and the splendidly named Haggard Bridge to carefully compare the Guinness in each.

If you're lucky enough to be on an extended trip (perhaps with the aid of that winning lottery ticket), make your way from Roches to the ferry port at Rosslare, from where you can sail serenely on to Fishguard and Pembroke in Wales, or to Cherbourg or Roscoff in la belle France.
