Wexford Wildfowl Reserve

Animals & Wildlife See & Do


Wexford Wildfowl Reserve is jointly owned and managed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service and BirdWatch Ireland.  The reserve is located on flat farmland on the North Slob which was reclaimed by walling it off from Wexford Harbour in the 1840s partly as a famine relief project.

The main habitat is farmland and a brackish channel.  Much of the area lies 2m below sea level and rainwater is pumped out using a water pump located in an old pump house near the Nature Reserve Visitor Centre.
