Relax, Play & Stay


Relax, play & stay in our self catering cottages full of character

Wells House & Gardens is one of the top tourist attractions in the South East with beautiful surroundings and a peaceful, friendly atmosphere. Relax amongst 450 acres of woodlands and walks, let the little ones Play in our playground, meet all the animals in animal farm and Explore the arboretum, Fairy walk and Mogue’s walk. Don’t forget to say Hello to the Gruffalo!

Within the Wells House estate are seven Courtyard Cottages built in the 1600s, quaint with character and an abundance of history. We have now opened the once-working yard as self-catering cottages to continue the story. The Pump House, The Dairy, The Tack Room, The Forge, The Gardener’s Cottage, The Mill, Molly’s & Mogue’s are all named after their original uses and tenants from the 1800s.

The Courtyard Cottages have been restored to deliver an authentic, country feel with wood-burning stoves, loft bedrooms and self-catering kitchens, but with essential modern touches – like high speed wifi. Each cottage has a unique layout and individual character to be enjoyed.

Wells House is only minutes from the beach, Kilmuckridge, Gorey town and Enniscorthy town – the ideal location to explore all

that Wexford has to offer.

What our guests have to say…

‘All really enjoyed their stay at Wells House. It was perfect for a family break. Cottages were very comfortable and we were all able to eat outside. The kids also had a great time. Most of our time was spent as a group even up to bed time. No hotel could have been as good for us as Wells House. It was a real family break.’

Louis Ryan, 2020

‘Great place for children to stay. We had lovely weather for our time there and it made the whole experience wonderful. Walks, animals and play park at your door. What else do you need’

Simon, Crossgar, United Kingdom

‘Myself, my wife and my two young sons had an amazing stay at Wells House. A fantastic amount of activities, farm, gardens & forest to explore…the best Fairy Trail we’ve seen yet. A wonderful, adventurous and imaginative place. A very welcoming & relaxed atmosphere. We will definitely be back for accommodation and also for day visits.’

Peter, Leixlip, Ireland

‘We had a fantastic stay, we loved our cottage, the kids loved the animals, the walks, the playground and the Archery. The coffee shop was perfect for us for breakfast. The beaches, Wexford Town and Gorey all short drives away. I loved the stunning trees and gardens on the estate. Sabine, our host and everyone at Wells were lovely and welcoming, if we needed anything, it was done. We’ll be back, maybe even without the kids, stove going and a glass of wine, perfect evening.’
