Features

Ballygarrett (Irish: Baile Ghearóid) is a rural village near Wexford’s east coast.

Despite being 3km from the coast, Ballygarrett has a strong connection with the sea side. Due to its ideal location on the R742 road, Ballygarret is popular with beach-goers on their way to Morriscastle, Poulshone and Cahore beaches. This means that the town’s businesses tend to cater to a tourist crowd with a focus on beach activities and supplies. For example, the local petrol station also doubles as a bait and tackle shop.

The catholic church in the centre of the village, St Mary’s Star of the Sea church, continues this connection with the sea with its name.
