You come to Wexford to stay with Caitriona - visiting the town ( or the rest of Ireland for that matter) is somewhat incidental, as Caitriona's warmth and unbounded hospitality tend to dominate your visit. Nothing is too much for this wonderfully busy woman, and spending just a little time to chat with her over tea and all the organic delights from her kitchen, you get an insight into a rich cultural background, that she enthusiastically shares with you.
Join her and her fellow choir members and acquaintances at Mary's Bar, and you're in for rare and raw slice of Irish bar entertainment as you've probably never experienced it.
Caitriona and Theo's place is just too good to miss - 20 mins from the ferry, but make it a destination rather than just a convenient stop-over before or after your ferry.
