Rathaspeck Manor

Set in rolling countryside less than 15 minutes drive from Wexford Town, the Cuddihy family’s handsome Georgian house is surrounded by parkland with ancient trees and a beautifully maintained Par 3 golf course which is available free to guests.


While impressive, it’s a warm and welcoming family home that has recently been given a makeover and now offers very pleasing country house accommodation.


All of the public rooms have been sensitively restored and renovated with due consideration for the special features of the house, which include an original and fully intact Robert Adams fireplace in the drawing room, which is one of only a few left in Ireland.


The very comfortable bedrooms are spacious and stylish, with modern bathrooms; some bathrooms are huge, and you may be lucky enough to get one with a roll top ball and claw bath - and a great view.


Breakfast is the only meal offered but it’s a very good one, featuring local produce: lots of fresh fruit and seasonal berries, cereals, and hot dishes including smoked salmon and scrambled eggs as well as the full Irish, freshly prepared and cooked to order.


It makes a pleasant start to the day, and is served in a lovely dining room with a large bay window, overlooking a reed bed and pond. For evening meals, Wexford Town is only a few minutes’ drive away and Betty O’Kennedy-Cuddihy is happy to share her favourite recommendations with guests.


Rathaspeck is very handy to Rosslare Europort and, thanks to a direct service operated by Wexford Bus, also to Dublin Airport. It would make a good base for exploring this fascinating region, and perhaps its most persuasive USP is the hassle-free golf – a well maintained 18-hole course (15 par 3, and 3 par 4 holes) right on the doorstep.


The unusual gate lodge is currently being restored under the guidance of the Heritage authorities.
