Wexford lights up for Christmas
Probably the best house in Wexford if not the country for exterior lights must be Walsh's in Drinagh. Each November the owners start to prepare the lights and decorations, checking bulbs and motors for rotating lights. The money they collect goes to local charity. I visit each year and my kids get huge enjoyment out of it. The owners obviously get a kick too as they then purchase new features in January. They put them all away until after Halloween and then get things up and running. The interest in outside lights at Christmas is a relatively new phenomena at year’s end. It adds to the sense of enjoyment. The pictures tell it all. Visiting these lights is part of the run in to Christmas for my kids. This house turns on lights at night fall and off at 9PM. To visit take the N25 towards Rosslare from Wexford to the garden centre, turn left and drive 500M, house on left hand side of a narrow lane. Drive slowly watch out for children of all ages.
