Bunclody is a small rural town in north-west County Wexford.
It is the main town in the north-west of Wexford and may be suitable as a base for shoots in the nearby Blackstairs Mountains, or the many little picturesque villages in the area. The small rural town is at the intersection of the N80 and the R746, and so has easy access the surrounding areas.
Bunclody has some charming idiosyncrasies that may make it an interesting location to filmmakers. On the main street is a feature called the Mall. This tree-lined pedestrian spot is centred around a channel that flows along the main street. The Mall gives Bunclody’s centre a unique and memorable visual personality.
Another unique feature of Bunclody is the charming outdoor swimming pool located near the community park. This swimming pool was built in the 1970s and is one of only a handful of public outdoor pools in the country.
Bunclody is bordered by forest on its north side and partially bordered on its west and eastern sides. These forests give Bunclody a surprisingly sylvan quality. This character is especially noticeable when entering the town from the north, as the road passes through the dense forest, then over a beautiful river bridge and then immediately enters the busy main street.
Other features in the town include: a golf club, one of Europe’s smallest synagogues, a hotel, first and second level schools, a very modern Catholic church, a more old-fashioned Anglican church, a fire station, as well as a variety of shops and other businesses.
Newtownbarry House is located just outside the town.
