On our way back to Wexford, we took a detour to see this quaint little fishing village.
Kilmore Quay (meaning Quay of the big church) is a fishing village near Kilmore in County Wexford. Population as of 2016 was 372.
In addition to fishing, the village offers leisure activities such as sailing and sea angling charters. Boat trips are available from the village to the Saltee Islands, just off shore. The Saltee Islands are known for being Ireland’s largest bird sanctuary with gannets, gulls, puffins, cormorants, razorbills and guillemots.
Every summer, the village holds a seafood festival with fresh seafood served daily, live music in the local pubs, raft races and family fun.
Our stop was brief…..and very wet. Lorenzo’s winds nearly ripped the doors off the car and then blew us across the parking lot. We sheltered briefly behind a wall as the boats rocked back and forth at anchor, halyards slapping at their masts.
