The Norman Way is a trail that runs along the south coast of County Wexford. It is part of Ireland's Ancient East - the roads and cycling trail promote the 900 year old history of the Anglo-Normans in Ireland and includes many medieval sites in addition to Sigginstown castle!
Right next to the Tacumshane Windmill is Meyler's Millhouse Bar & Restaurant. A delicious and friendly place to eat!
In Tacumshane next to St. Catherine's (new) church there is the Tacumshane Old School Community Development which hosts multiple activities including Story Night on the first Friday of each month. We go whenever we can...
Many other interesting sites can be seen along the route from Rosslare Harbour to New Ross.
The cycle route is part of Eurovelo Atlantic Coast route, and can also be driven by car.
Nearby to the castle, other sites include
St. Catherine's Church and Graveyard is nearby and a tranquil place to visit.
We love going to the Karoo Farm Shop in nearby Killinick - great breakfasts and lunches!
Also we have enjoyed eating and drinking at Ye Olde Cooper's Inn and the Merry Elf pub right across the street.
The Amber gas station there has good groceries, and many useful things like trash disposal and a washer-dryer outside!
Near to the Norman Way is Killiane Castle - a working farm, Bed and Breakfast and Self-Catering establishment. Killiane castle is very similar to Sigginstown except it is not a total ruin!
This is also a lovely place to stay with generous hosts and closer to Wexford town.
