Campile (Irish: Ceann Phoill or Ceann Poill, meaning ‘head of the creek’) is a small but industrial village in south-west County Wexford.
The village, while small, is quite built up and brimming with industry. Along the main street are a large farmers co-op and a builder’s merchant. These two large industrial yards hold stock and heavy machinery and together give the town a particularly industrial feel. And located 13km away from Campile is the Great Island Power Station. The gas-powered energy station may give filmmakers extra location options for industrial scenes.
Away from the industry, the village has a quaint feel and may interest filmmakers as a scenic village. Arranged around a long main street, the village has houses from different decades, as well as pubs, restaurants, a post-office, hardware store, soccer pitch, and a particularly large community hall.
Campile is also ideally located near some of south-west County Wexford’s most interesting spots. Dunbrody Abbey is just 2.6km away from the village. While, Kilmokea House is 5km away and the JFK Aboretum is 5.5km away.
