Waiting to be explored in the lush green countryside of Wexford in the cornerstone of Ireland's Ancient East is Wells House and Gardens. Both the house and gardens were designed by renowned architect Daniel Robertson in the 1830s, he introduced features like the Terrace Gardens, Radiating Parterre, Arboretum and Main Avenue. His work in the terraced garden and woodland walks give visitors the ideal opportunity to enjoy the space and setting of this stunning Victorian estate.
