Small Village, Big Heart


It’s little wonder Kilmore Quay became a fishing port. It’s location at the end of a peninsula sees it reach out toward the Salted Islands, its protected by a rocky promontory to the West and a long sandbar, known as St. Patrick’s Bridge, to the East. 

Right across the road from The Wooden House Hotel there’s a golden sandy beach about 250 metres in length. Less than ten minutes’ walk, on the other side of the Harbour, the golden sands stretch on for 12km to the west.

Trawlers have fished from Kilmore Quay for centuries but just over a century ago amateur anglers began to come here to cast from the beach or from hired boats. In the years since, Kilmore Quay has become a much-loved holiday destination, welcoming families, couples and friends from across Ireland and from the UK and France via the Rosslare Ferry, just 30 minutes away. The newly refurbished Wooden House Hotel & Apartments puts you at the heart of that welcome.
