Wells House is a great family day out on the grounds of a 17th-century Victorian House, with enchanting woodland walks and lots to do. It is located about 30 minutes from Wexford and about an hour and a half from Dublin (link to location). Note there is an entrance fee and tickets can be booked online in advance at https://wellshouse.ie/entry-fees-wexford.
There are two woodland walks on the grounds, Mogue’s Walk with a range of amazing wooden sculptures and the Fairy Trail which also includes wooden statues of the characters from the Gruffalo. For any little fans of the Gruffalo, it is a great walk as they hunt for all the characters, the mouse, the fox, owl and snake.
Other activities on the grounds include:
- Coffee and restaurant
- Wishing well
- Animal farm
- Wells House tour
