Hotel Churchtown House
Built in 1703, Churchtown House was associated with some of Wexford’s most powerful families involved in the 1798 insurrection; notably the Herron Family whose son John later became one of Napoleon’s favourite generals. Today, Patricia and Austin Cody have returned Churchtown to its former glory and in extending it have combined its traditional elegance with all the comforts of a small distinctive country house. Set in 8 acres of mature parkland, Churchtown provides a haven of peace and tranquillity. Elegant reception rooms hung with Irish paintings and individually appointed bedrooms make this the perfect breakaway retreat. Dinner at Churchtown celebrates good country food cooked in a traditional style, matched with a personal selection of fine wine - please book in advance. Churchtown House is an ideal base from which to explore Wexford “A land of Living History” with an abundance of forts, castles and abbeys. Enjoy golf, blue flag beaches, bird watching, fishing and horse riding nearby. Recommended by Michelin and the Good Hotel Guide, Georgina Campbell, Karen Brown and Alaistar Sawday.
