Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Leinster / County Wexford / Ardcavan / Wexford Wildfowl Reserve
A paradise for bird-watchers, Wexford Wildfowl Reserve provides a home to more than 250 species of birds, many of them winter migrants from Greenland, Scandinavia, Arctic Canada, and Russia. Located on a flat slobland reclaimed from the sea over a century ago, the reserve was originally established for the preservation of wild geese from Greenland, its most famous resident. Take a guided tour of the three hides to learn more about the wildlife, or bring binoculars and climb the 8 m (26 ft) tall observation tower. Make your Ardcavan itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

I wasn't really impressed with the reserve. Walked for more than an hour for a small swamp with geese. There's only limited space where you can wander around. If you're a bird watcher with gear it might be worth it, but for me it wasn't really worth coming out to.
Lovely quiet place with a good information centre with picnic tables and facilities. The hides were easily accessible Enjoyed the visit very much.
