Description:

A great Victorian house & gardens in the heart of Wexford Wells House...

A great Victorian house & gardens in the heart of Wexford Wells House has something for all generations to enjoy and share: Our two woodland walks; Lady Frances Woodland Walk & Mogue's, discover hidden treasures in a verdant landscape of mature plants and trees. Victorian Terrace Gardens - Relax in our beautifully restored formal gardens based on the original Daniel Robertson plans of the 1830's. Adventure Playground - Swings, slides and climbing frames, perfect for kids up to 40. The old stable block has been converted into the Craft Courtyard - an ideal shopping hub for crafts and unique gifts! The Living Victorian House Tour - Experience real life in a Victorian Great House through the eyes of Lady Frances and the residents of Wells House. Wells House Archery - Let the resident Archer show you how to shoot a bow at the only 3D course in Ireland. Mrs Stone's Tearooms - enjoy morning coffees, light lunches and afternoons teas. For that special treat try the signature cup cakes or irresistible fresh scones. Wells House is over 300 years old. It was built in the late 1600s by John Warren who owned more than 6,000 acres of land in the area. Note: Archery is by reservation Monday-Friday

Beautiful walks with lots to keep little people entertained. A friendly, cosy cafe and always something new to see. We love Wells House and it is our 'go to' place whenever we have visitors, young or old.

All I can say is it was magical, Santa was excellent, the kids were mesmerised. I loved the surroundings and would have loved to have seen more of the house. Will definitely be going back!

This is a fabulous place to visit. After a lovely walk around the various tracks, you can sit down in the restaurant and have a lovely cup of tea and a sandwich or soup. There are lots of things on the menu but the seafood chowder with the homemade brown bread was yummy!

Beautiful house, gardens and woodlands. My toddler loved searching for fairy doors and Gruffalo characters. Tea rooms are fantastic. Really friendly staff and delicious treats at a reasonable price. Would recommend a visit.

Wells House has Mountains of Charm while providing lots of activities for kids. The fairy trails and kids play area is great, the family Sundays where they have themed parties ie. Mad Hatters Tea Party. The BBQ is also great value and quality. We love our days out here and will revisit again and again.

Lovely walks, lovely restaurant, lovely setting. Great for a relaxing day out on your own but particularly with young kids who love searching for the fairy doors on the fairy walk.
