ABOUT THE AREA
Bunclody is a picturesque town in the Southeast of ireland with accommodation, businesses and services to suit most needs. it is in North County Wexford on the Co. Carlow border. it nestles in the shelter of Mount Leinster and on the banks of the meandering River Slaney.
The town has a growing population of about 2,300 and is well serviced by a hotel, b&b’s, a golf course, shops, mini-markets, newsagents, public houses (Bars), fine restaurants, pub food, a laundry, hardware stores, service stations, mechanics and any other services you would expect in a small town.
it has two churches, one Roman Catholic and the other Church of ireland. There is also a little Jewish chapel at Rainsford Lodge. The town has primary and second level schools. There are numerous sporting organisations and societies.
There are some lovely scenic drives along the Slaney valley and to popular viewpoints on Mount Leinster. The town also has a heated swimming pool which opens during the school summer holidays.
Another less vigorous activity practised by some of the locals at the weekends, is to purchase a newspaper and then retire to one of the numerous pubs to study form (horse racing). Then after a few pints of Guinness and a well-marked newspaper, pop into the local bookies for a small bet. Then back to the pub to await the televised race.
Anyway, if you do visit, you will always find something to do, whether it be vigorous hill walking or a leisurely river walk, or perhaps a tour of the pubs. Or even eat an ice-cream cone on one of the seats along the Mall (a stream that flows through the centre of main street). See map.
Bunclody also has an annual festival called the Eileen Aroon festival, which creates great activity in the town, with pub quizzes and pub talent competitions, free music on the Square and lots of other activities and events to suit everybody. This festival is held about the second week in July and more information will be posted on this site as we get nearer the event.
