How to get here:

Sigginstown Castle is in the Magical Land of Tacumshane, in the Ancient Barony of Forth in County Wexford, Ireland. Tacumshane is nestled between the popular sea-side villages of Kilmore Quay to the west and Lady's Island to the east. 

In the modern world, we are only 15 minutes drive from Rosslare Harbor and the ferry to Wales, France and Spain, making a lovely first or last stop in Ireland! If flying, we are under 2 hours drive south of Dublin Airport. The road is mostly motorway with a speedy trip down to Wexford via the M-50, M11 and N25. At Killinick village turn left at the Merry Elf pub, and follow signs for Meylers Millhouse. At the four-way crossing, turn right, go past St. Catherine's ruined church, and you will see the castle on your left. Please continue past the cul-de-sac road, and enter by large gates  on the main gate will be on the left - on the main road with the Norman Way sign. Enter "Sigginstown Castle" on Google Maps for correct entrance.
