Guild Events

Holiday in Wexford
Sunday 21 October 2018 - Saturday 27 October 2018
Dress: As shown in the event instructions

The Guild has been to Northern Ireland on a number of occasions over the years but Ireland is a big country and it is time we saw more of what it has to offer, so the Master has planned to go at a very special time of the year and things will be busy! The visit will commence in Dublin City a few minutes from Gresham Street and O'Connell Street (The Bond Street area of Dublin) staying in the family owned Academy Plaza hotel, within walking distance of the centre and various landmarks. The Master is a trustee of the Irish Georgians Society and is arranging visits to various locations in Dublin plus a visit to the theatre on one of the evenings. On Tuesday we travel to Enniscorthy, County Wexford staying at the 4 star Riverside Park hotel which has comfortable and spacious bedrooms, a spa and a large swimming pool. The hotel is within a few minutes walking distance of the town which has a unique Pugin Church and period charm. From the hotel by coach we can visit Hook Head Lighthouse, Waterford Glass Museum, Rosslare and Wexford Town. Various local beaches, which go back to the 1950's in style, are close by with miles of open sand and sea. We will visit a unique farm which is also a period antique shop with original garden furniture and ornaments and unusual things of interest not normally found in an antique centre down a farm track! The highlight of the trip will be a performance at the world renowned Wexford Festival Opera (visited by the Kennedy family and Prime Ministers). We will dine at the Riverside Hotel while in Wexford and the Master will also host a drinks reception during our stay. The Master has a Georgian house in Ballycourcy, which is close to Enniscorthy, and will welcome us into his home for afternoon tea. A number of surprises are proposed but more of that as the plan unfolds! As there are so many flights to Dublin the Master will leave it to members to make travel arrangements to suit themselves, but transfers can be arranged.
