The entrance to the picturesque village of Kilmore framed with Thatched Cottages made in the traditional way from straw and stone immediately give the impression of what life was like in the small fishing village hundreds of years ago. Now a bustling fishing port with strong commercial fishing fleets and newly built 55-berth marina, which holds Blue Flag status and provides safe berthing and on-shore facilities for all mariners.

The village of Kilmore Quay is renowned for its seafood cuisine and traditional pubs.

The first Norman invasion to Ireland was at Bannow Bay in 1169, this historic estuary and peninsula is now home to different settlers, namely Brent Geese, Wigeon, Teal and many other wintering wildfowl.

The Bannow Drive, a signposted route through the villages of Duncormick, Cullentstown, Bannow and Wellingtonbridge is well worth seeing. There is a deserted Norman settlement known locally as the seven castles (private land). It is clearly visible just outside Wellingtonbridge.
