Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford

Enniscorthy (Irish: Inis Córthaidh) is the second-largest town in County Wexford and with a history going back to 465 AD, Enniscorthy can rightfully call itself one of the longest continuously-occupied sites in Ireland. It is situated on the River Slaney in the centre of the county, 24 km (15 miles) north of the county town, Wexford.

Enniscorthy is a thriving market town (pottery is a speciality of the area), is in a very picturesque part of the Slaney Valley, on steeply sloping ground on both banks of the river. The River Slaney is navigable up to this point, and there is much river traffic with Wexford. Vinegar Hill offers a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside and the river. The annual Strawberry Fair takes place in late June/early July.
