Wexford Wildfowl Reserve offers activities for primary schools including field studies at the Snipe Field and at Raven Wood Nature Reserve. These include pond dipping, bug hunting and tracking for red squirrel and badger. Our all-weather winter programme includes studying the rare Greenland White-fronted Goose with binoculars and seeing bugs through microscopes.

Open 09:00 to 17:00 every day (except Christmas day).


Our education program is now running from March to December and we’re taking bookings for the spring and summer terms from schools in and close to Wexford County. We have an indoor program of bird watching, wildlife detective work and examining animal form and function. Our outdoor activities in the summer and autumn terms include pond-dipping, bug and plant discovery, tracking for signs of elusive mammals, learning about animal life cycles and relations between plants and animals.
