Introducing County Wexford

County Wexford's navigable rivers and fertile land have long lured invaders and privateers. The Vikings founded Ireland's first major towns on the wide, easy-flowing River Slaney, which cuts through the middle of the county. The most enjoyable modern way for visitors to appreciate Wexford's swashbuckling maritime history is pausing in pretty waterfront villages and sampling catches from the surrounding waves.
