Arthurstown is a coastal village on the estuary of the Three Sisters in South West county Wexford. 

The village has scenic views of the estuary and the tall hills on either side of the river. The centrepiece of the location is the small cove at the edge of the village called King’s Bay. Houses curl around the shore of the bay, meet the pier at one end, and the winding road out of the village on the other. 

The rural village has bars, restaurants, and accommodation to cater to tourists. The 19th century pier is mostly used to temporarily moor smaller boats. A stoney beach is located at the south end of the village.

Just 1km away is Ballyhack, another coastal village. The Passage East Ferry has a terminal in Ballyhack.
