This holiday park's amenities block has hot showers, while there's also an on site laundrette, and the park stocks gas cylinders and gas mantels. There's an on-site takeaway if you fancy a night off cooking, plus a well stocked shop where you can top up on essentials – maybe you want to cook and eat al fresco in the campsite's barbecue area? Kids will enjoy the children's play area and TV room, and Wi-Fi is available too, great for keeping in touch with friends and family when on tour.

The Trading Post is also very near a traditional country pub. Or how about a trip to the beautiful beach that's just a few miles away, plus there are two high quality golf courses close by.
About half an hour from this campsite is the Irish National Heritage Park, which you'll find at Ferrycarrig, offering 35 acres of stunning parkland and walking trails. A day out here on your motorhome, camping and caravan holidays in Ireland is an adventure in itself, with several old buildings to take in and activities taking place across the park most days.
The impressive and imposing Enniscorthy Castle also makes a great day out when you're touring this region of Eire. You could also take in the Irish Agricultural Museum and Johnstown Castle Gardens, or the Victorian Wells House and Gardens during your tour of County Wexford. And you can easily spend a day enjoying Wexford, the county town. Wander around the ruins of the 12th century Selskar Abbey or head to Wexford Wildfowl Reserve.
Take your car, campervan or motorhome and enjoy driving up Ireland's east coast, stopping to take photos, have a bite to eat and enjoy the views along the way. Arklow, which sits just over the county border in County Wicklow, is only about 40 minutes from The Trading Post. In the opposite direction, in the town of New Ross, which is on the border with County Kilkenny, you could visit the SS Dunbrody Emigrant Ship and learn more about the local and national history on your camping trips, motorhome and caravan holidays in Ireland – and nearby you will find the Ros Tapestry Exhibition Centre.
Hook Head Safaris is another top tourist attraction in the area. Tours run from Wexford, Waterford and New Ross, and take you away to discover the Hook Peninsula. Enjoy clifftop walks, visit beaches and stately homes, and go off the beaten track to learn more about the area and to appreciate its natural, stunning beauty.
