Wexford Region…

Strategic location

The fifth largest region in Ireland, the South East region has a population of 581,615. Wexford is the largest town in the south east and, with the capital city of Dublin less than 90 minutes away, the benefits of Wexford and the South East region are many.

With significantly upgraded road infrastructure in the region along with good port, rail and air access, Wexford offers excellent connectivity into the rest of Ireland, Europe and beyond. Two major by-pass projects valued in excess of half a billion euros were undertaken in the county, the M11 extension, which included an additional 27km of motorway, opened in July 2019 and the N25 New Ross Bypass is due to open in Q1 2020. These infrastructure projects will provide an uninterrupted motorway from Wexford to Belfast along with faster access to the urban centres in the south and west of Ireland.

The administrative area of County Wexford has four districts with a large town each: Wexford Town, Enniscorthy, New Ross and Gorey. Wexford Town is the both the largest town in the south east and the capital town of County Wexford.
