What People say

It was our first visit to Wells house and we are from Wexford! We found the staff very friendly and accommodating even though we were a few minutes late for the 2pm tour.

Edel our tour guide was very knowledgeable, informative and made the tour really enjoyable. It’s amazing the way the locals protected the house during 1798 it shows how much they admired and respected the Doyne family.

We will definitely be returning for some of the events throughout the year, to see the garden in full bloom and maybe even Victorian afternoon tea!
