In this collection of Trek Ireland™ guided virtual tours, you'll explore Saltee Island Great, which lies 5 miles offshore from the coastal port of Kilmore Quay, County Wexford.
Once on the island, natural heritage guide Jim Hurley describes the local flora and fauna as you walk through wildflower meadows and along stunning sheer clifftop ledges. Enjoy this guided virtual tour of protected Grey Seal and European Gannet colonies in one of Ireland's Special Areas of Conservation (SAC).
Onshore, our next virtual tour explores Tintern Abbey Minor—a medieval abbey with walled gardens, rivers, and woodland walks. Here, natural heritage guide Jim Hurley describes the dramatic voyage of Anglo-Norman Knight William Marshall when he arrived to Ireland in the 13th Century AD. Enjoy this beautiful walk-at-home tour through one of Ireland's nationally protected heritage sites in early Spring.
Further along the coast, you can explore an ancient Irish pre-Christian pilgrimage trail around Lady's Island Lake—once the home to a pagan Celtic female druidic settlement—established in the pre-Chrisitian Roman times of the 2nd Century AD.
In the last of this series of guided virtual tours of south Wexford, you can explore the protected dune systems at Ballyteige Burrow down by the shores of the Irish Sea.
Trek Ireland guided virtual tours show scenic viewpoints to relax and enjoy between each virtual walking tour. Warm up, stretch, or cool down to naturally calm scenes at Kilmore Quay, County Wexford's premier fishing port, or imagine the arrival of the Anglo-Norman naval ships, in 1170AD, at the peaceful and evocative beach of Bagibun Head, where the conquest of Ireland truly begun. Finally, take in the expansive views of the Irish Sea at Carnsore Point known as a place of Drudic worship from early Roman times called 'Ιερονm' meaning 'a sacred promontory'.
