Cahore is a small fishing village and tourism spot on County Wexford’s north-east coast.

The village is a well known tourism destination, and will make a good filming location where a holiday village near the sea is required. Tourists come to the area for nearby Old Bawn Beach. Old Bawn is one of the best sandy beaches in County Wexford.

Cahore is also ideal as a fishing village location. The village is visually dominated by the bay and the pier that sits at its edge. The pier is used by whelk fishers to unload. The crescent shaped bay seems to connect the village direcly to the ocean. And with the sea wall rocks that line the bay, it gives the village a distinct and memorable nauticaul character.

Cahore Pier is a popular diving and swimming spot in the hot summer months. Also on the pier, and overlooking the bay, is a characterful bar and restaurant. This bar gives the village a lot of old-fashioned charm.

There are also two caravan holiday parks in the area, which give filmmakers further options for tourism-related locations.
