Raven Wood

The walk in Raven Wood begins from the car park. This car park is located east from Curracloe Village. There is plenty of wildlife for your viewing pleasure here and the sand dunes on the left and Wexford Slob on the right side of the track are a beautiful sight to behold. Keep walking and enjoying the view for about three kilometres. You will eventually reach a grassy track where you can enjoy breathtaking views of Rosslare, the Wexford Harbour and the majestic Mount Leinster. From here, take the path to your left and be sure to look for grey seals in the water. A word of warning though: stay away from the sand banks. It’s possible to get trapped there because they are quick sands and the tide could make matters even worse. After a while, you will arrive at the end of Raven Point. If you still feel like strolling, you can take a walk on the golden sands of Curracloe Beach from here. This walk is pretty long at 15 kilometres. The walk will eventually end back at the car park.
