Gorey is a mid-sized town in north County Wexford.

Gorey is a compact and modern town with a strong commercial leaning. It may be an ideal filming location for scenes that require a contemporary and affluent area. The town was the fastest growing town in Ireland in the early 2000s, meaning that there are many modern houses, shops and services.

However, for filmmakers that require a more modest and old-fashioned look, Gorey does retain its historic qualities, especially along parts the main street, possessing late 1800s houses, and a late 1700s market house.

Gorey may be a useful base for utilizing other areas in north County Wexford. The town’s location in the north of Wexford and along the main M11 Dublin to Wexford motorway, means that Gorey has the advantage of being the closest town in Wexford to Dublin and Wicklow. It is also ideally located near Courtown and other strong seaside locations.

Gorey has a shopping centre, multiple retail locations, as well as a busy main street. There is a theatre, two hotels, a cinema, garda station, library, and post office. The town is also connected by rail to Dublin and Wexford.
