After a long walk on the beach we stopped at The Thatch in Killeagh and had wonderful seafood chowder full of fish and flavour. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere warm and relaxed.

A large group of us went to the The Old Thatch for dinner on the way to my brother's stag last weekend. The food we got was great and the staff were really efficient and polite, they even gave my brother his dinner on the house. I would strongly recommend it.

This was a great find for us on the way to Wexford. The welcoming staff as we walked in was impressive. The food and wine was superb. The place has a wonderful ambience and is well worth a visit.
