A Castlebridge


We live, work and shop in Castlebridge, located on the outskirts of Wexford Town. Once an agri-industry village producing malt barley for Guinness. Castlebridge is now a busy, diverse small town of over 2000 people. We find local energy and pride in Castlebridge’s sports clubs and in the enthusiasm of the many local community groups. We are a welcoming place that enjoys the natural environment and our rich heritage. Castlebridge is the birthplace of the Guinness Book of Records idea and is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Slaney estuary, the river Sow and Edenvale.

You may be living here or visiting Castlebridge, whoever you are, you are heartily welcome. Our invitation is to enjoy the best of Castlebridge, to get involved locally and do business locally. In doing so you will continue to build a dynamic town and a great place to live.
