Rosslare Holiday Resort is located in the South east of Wexford and has some of the best hours of sunshine in Ireland, Along with having one of Ireland’s small but best used ferry ports it is also visited by many people for holidays or day trips to the wonderful beach.

We stayed here back in 2008 for a wonderful week and walked ourselves and Molly our Golden retriever along the beach each day. She made many new friends with people and dogs during her time here, managing to get them to entertain her in the sea for hours.

I really enjoyed watching so many people enjoy themselves here, walking along the beach, swimming, and exercising themselves and there dogs.

  2. I don’t live by a beach. 😦
    But I have walked on some. I enjoyed the winter or fall walks as much or more than the hot summer ones.

  5. I’m wondering about the couple in bathing suits when everyone else seems to be buttoned up to the chin. Brave souls!
