Wexford Wildfowl Reserve


The Wexford Wildfowl Reserve is a wild bird protection and wetland conservation area near Wexford town.

The reserve may be a useful filming location when a vast and unspoilt landscape is needed. It is located on Wexford’s north slob and covers about 2km squared of flatland reclaimed from the sea. The reclaimed land is flat and wide, and because of this, has a strange and liminal atomsphere.

The land of the slob includes both farmland and patches of more rugged and brackish wetland. The reserve sits on the wide and shallow harbour of the slob channel on one side, and the slaney estuary on the other. These water features give filmmakers extra options in utilizing the area.

Along with the geographic feautres, the reserve is also home to over 250 species of animals and birds. These include a range of geese, swan and duck species, while hares, foxes and badgers are some of the mammals that can be seen in the reserve.
