Duncormick, or Duncormac, (Irish: Dún Cormaic) is a whimsical and charming small rural village in south County Wexford.
The village is an ideal filming location for scenes set in a rural farming village, or for rural scenes that need a bit of soul or humour. Duncormick has two unusual buildings within sight of each other. The first is Sinnott’s Bar on the main street. This thatched, 200 hundred year old building is brimming with easy going charm.
And up the road from the bar is St Peter’s Catholic Church. The church’s steeple, with its flamboyant crenellation, has a suprisingly fantastical quality. Elevated on a hill that looks down onto the village, the church is visible through the trees in winter months and appears to spy on the village below.
The village has a particularly rural feel due to the green spaces in and around the village. The urban part of the village is very short, only about 50m long and the rest of the village consists of houses and estates with green areas (fields and playing areas) separating them. Even the village centre is bounded at both sides by copses of trees, which makes it feel more rual. Adding to this rural quality is that the largest local business is the agricultural vehicle seller across from St Peter’s church.
Locations in the village include St Peter’s Catholic Church, Sinnott’s Bar, Duncormick Bridge, a river walk, and a disused train platform.
The river Muck flows through the village, and where it meets the sea nearby, it creates vast and visually interesting slobland.
Population: ~120 people.
Parking: Street parking in the village centre, 5-10 cars.
