The rink will open on November 25 and will run until January 8 so there is plenty of time to perfect your moves.

However if you are a little unsure on your skates there will be fully trained and experienced ice marshalls on the ice at all times to make sure everyone enjoys their experience and there will be plenty of stability aids id you need a helping hand!

The Wexford People Wexford on Ice rink is expected to attract huge crowds to Wexford once again this year.

Two movie screens, a light show, giant Christmas trees and of course, the view of Wexford Harbour will serve as the backdrop for one of the most popular attractions of the festive season.


Alongside the rink, there will be an an ice cafe stocked with hot chocolate and plenty of other winter warmers.

There will also be free sensory sessions every Saturday morning from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. which will allow those who wouldn’t normally get the chance to go skating to have their very own special session. Music and lighting is turned down for the sessions.

Those interested must book a place through the Box Office on 053 91 99199.
