Heritage Flyer:

The flyer details in text and pictures the various heritage features in our historic village. The flyer can be obtained as a pdf download Download the Ferns Heritage Brochure (may take a couple of minutes due to size) here or as a hard copy from local shops and other outlets throughout Co. Wexford.

Website:

Part funding for this project was received from Wexford Local Development Ltd.

Ferns Village Heritage Trail:

This trail brings you to a range of heritage sites throughout the village. Evidence of Ferns' historic past can be seen along this route, bringing you from 6th century up to 1916. The trail is a member of the Wexford Trails network, a countywide series of tourism trails which include Wexford Craft Trail, Wexford Garden Trail, Wexford Heritage Trail and Wexford Walking Trail. The Ferns Village heritage Trail is a member of the Heritage and the Walking Trail. Membership of this countywide network will mean that our trail will have a trailhead sign and waymarking making it easier for the visitor to locate sites of interest. Visit www.wexfordwalkingtrail.ie for more information.

Campaigns

Ferns Castle

The Ferns Castle and Visitors Centre currently opens from the end of May to the end September. We are lobbying to have this period extended to accommodate various groups who wish to visit throughout the year.

Road Signage:

The location of Ferns is very poorly described in road signage; this arises from National Roads Authority policy which we will seek to change.

Heritage Feature Signage:

Within the village we aim to provide pedestrian signage indicating the location of heritage features.
