Kilmore Quay, is surrounded by miles of beautiful beaches stretching all along the scenic Wexford coastline. As part of our local attractions we will give details of one of the local Nature Trails and Sea Walks that our guests have done many times.

Nemestowm Shore Nature Trail/ Sea WalkKQ Jan 14:
Access is unrestricted to walkers. The round trip from Kilmore Quay village is 2 km long and takes about an hour to do in the leisurely way. Start at the little strand at the bottom of the garden and continue on to St Patrick’s bridge. As you enjoy your walk, please follow the country code with which I’m sure you’re quite familiar. The shore is a site of geological importance with rocks from the late Precambrian age. Of special interest, among other things are the visible signs of what is called a raised beach. A raised beach is the remains of a former beach. It is higher than the level of the modern-day beach. Raised beaches were caused by upward and downward movement of the land and the sea down the ages. Opinions vary on the age and the origin of these.

The bed rocks exposed on the foreshore near the steps of Olinda Coastal Cottages are Precambrian and amongst the oldest in Ireland.
