Whitechurch is a quaint village in south-west County Wexford.
The village may be ideal for filmmakers who need a rural village location set in the past, or a modern one where the past feels very close at hand. The village’s core consists of unmarked and winding roads and is dominated by the Church of Ireland church from the 1740s. The houses of the village, although not nearly as old as the church, are mostly built following a traditional aesthetic. On the north side of the village, around the corner, are more mordern houses. While on the south side of the village, there are farm buildings and barns in traditional farm yards.
The village also has a relatively large and weathered Church of Ireland cemetery. The modest gravemarkers add to the quaint and old fashioned aesthetic of the village. The graveyard and church may be especially useful as a filming location due to its central location in the village.
Whitechurch is also ideally placed near some of south-west County Wexford’s most interesting locations. The JFK Arboretum is just 2.5km away, while Kilmokea House and Dunbrody Abbey are just 5.5km and 6km away respectively.
