About the Owner
Although I now live elsewhere, I grew up in Kilmore Quay and built 'Seaward' in 2001 so that I will always have a place there.
I've loved the out of doors since spending my childhood swimming on local beaches and fishing off the local coast and beaches with my Dad. Our harbour now boasts a small marina, but thankfully very little else has changed over the intervening years.
Kilmore Quay is as unspoilt as ever. It's a wonderful little seaside village, famous for thatched cottages, fishing, seafood, sunshine, swimming, sailing and scuba diving!
'Seaward' is in it's own grounds, five minutes walk from the harbour and two beaches, four minutes from two shops. Two excellent seafood restaurants are about five minutes walk away, with a great local gastro pub a few minutes more!
From the Owner
“I built 'Seaward' in 2001 so that I would always have a home near to the sea. I wanted my house to be bright and have a feeling of space and I'm happy both have been achieved. It's a great place to get away from it all, summer or winter! Because Kilmore Quay is situated in a micro-climate, in summer it get more sunshine than many neighbouring areas and often there is a seamless transition from blue sea to blue sky. On the other hand, in winter, the sea exhibits all of it's wild power and beauty. Despite it's village atmosphere, Kilmore Quay is only twenty-five minutes from Wexford town with it's characteristic narrow streets. This historic town is also home to the world famous Festival Opera every autumn. The village is near to Hook Head and the many lovely beaches of south Wexford.”
Activity and Interests
'Seaward' is less than ten minutes walking distance from two beaches.
The first, smaller beach is located beside the harbour/marina. It is sheltered with a flat surface so great for small children. When the tide is out, the many rock pools provide wonderful crab fishing opportunities! Our other beach, The Burrow, is >5 km long! Looking out at the Saltee Islands, the beach & it's sand dunes are wonderful places to walk. Being south-facing, it's coarse sand gets really hot at times. Wonderful!

From the Owner
“As 'Seaward' is located within the village, just park your car and put away the keys for the duration of your stay! You can walk everywhere, whether to the beaches, sand dunes (great for long walks), shops, pub, or church. There is a also regular bus service to Wexford town for those who really don't want to start their car?! The property has a very large enclosed lawn which is an ideal place for children or pets to play as it's approx. one hundred yards from the public road. As the site is slightly elevated and is less two hundred yards from the water, 'Seaward' has sea views from almost all rooms. The extensive outdoor space with it's south-facing aspect make this property a great place to spend long, lazy summer days if you want a break from sailing, swimming, fishing or scuba diving.”
