Excellent views

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.

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.

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

Please note

A charge of €1.00 ($1.12) applies for the use of the shower.

Excellent site with great facilities and friendly staff.09/05/2019

    The views overlooking the sea and the friendliness of the owner. There is a lovely covered area with kitchen equipment that campers can use to socialise. The bathrooms! There is a bath (although not used as a bath) with a shower attached so lots of room. In the room there is also a toilet and basin. The honesty pot for shower payment was great - do hope people use it - we certainly did. Much better than paying a meter and wondering if you have enough time to rinse your hair!

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately the floor in the bathroom gets muddy and slippery - a slotted mat on the floor would solve this. There are only 2 bathrooms and no separate toilets which could be inconvenient at busy times.

As near to wild camping with electricity and a warm shower.08/31/2019

    It was very quiet and off the beaten track. We were worried about the lack of toilet and shower facilities but need not have been as only 2 other vans were staying there. They loos were spotless and thoroughly cleaned. There is a kitchen with microwave, fridge and kettle and a sink to do your washing up. It’s open to the elements but has a roof and if the sun is shining it is quite pleasant to look out over the bay. Plus you get a good signal on your phone as it is a bit higher up 😊

    Disliked: 

    Very windy when we stayed which you can’t do anything about.

Location

[[ campsite.name ]]
This park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.
[[ place.name ]]
  • Clonmines, Wellingtonbridge, Wexford, Co. Wexford, Republic of Ireland, Y35 R9P9
  • Timezone Europe/Dublin GMT (GMT+01:00)   GPS 52.2514°N 6.7691°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.
