Events At Courtown
Courtown Harbour is Ireland's premier seaside resort offering you fabulous beaches, relaxing forest walks, a host of activities and a great selection of accommodation for you to choose from. Situated in North County Wexford, an area that is blessed with fine weather and has the record for the highest sunshine levels in Ireland, Courtown Harbour has grown from strength to strength in recent years and is proud to welcome tourists to our lovely seaside village.
Courtown has been welcoming tourists (or ‘bathers’ as they were known) as far back as the mid 1800’s. The village itself is steeped in a vast and fascinating history; in fact the name dates back to 1278. In the early 1800’s, the construction of the harbour began and cost £25,000 to complete. It was a worthwhile investment as Courtown had been famous for its beaches long before the harbour came into being, but the presence of the harbour really put Courtown on the map and it became very popular as a fashionable destination, with people from Dublin and the midlands frequenting the village and beaches.
Courtown Harbour and North Wexford offer an abundance of activities to suit everybody’s tastes. In Courtown Harbour itself you will find amusement parks, arcades, ten pin bowling, adventure golf and much more; as well as a leisure centre with its fantastic waterslide and an outdoor activity area. As you move on to the surrounding hinterland you will find an extensive selection of golf courses, mini farms, horse riding, horse racing, greyhound racing as well as the many historical visitor centres in County. There are also fabulous natural amenities on offer in Courtown and North Wexford with its infamous golden beaches, fabulous forest and river walks and let’s not forget the Harbour itself which looks stunning at any time of the day.
