Ash blonde beach meets golfing

Bing House, County Wexford

Architect designed and full of creative features, this inspirational contemporary home is perched on an exposed bluff above St. Helen’s Bay beach - just a chip away from the 14th green of the golf course.
Celebrated as the sunniest part of Ireland, Rosslare is ideally located for visitors from Europe and Dublin alike, and an ideal location during the Wexford Opera Festival.

There is something intriguing about this wide white international style home -you can’t wait to get inside and see how it works.

The entrance is at landing level, but just above it is a voluminous sitting room, where enormous window walls reveal the real rationale for this house – a stunning and unpredictable expanse of ocean.

Sliding the windows aside, there is a skirting balcony overlooking an expanse of lawn that abruptly falls away to sandy St. Helen’s beach below.

Spacious, contemporary and open plan in style, the living area wraps around a double-sided wood-burning stove, and wanders up a step into an equally generous dining area.
A long galley kitchen of pink granite surfaces spans one wall, with a breakfast bar at one end.

A lofty attic ceiling unites these inclusive door-less spaces, while a featured glass block wall re-distributes the daylight throughout the home.

Outside

Bing is down a secluded lane sandwiched between the beach and the 14th green of St. Helen’s Bay golf course. It’s a bit of a scramble to get down to the shore, as the steps were washed away in recent storms, so it is more easily reached via stairs at the Golf Club a short stroll away.
Directly out to sea is the Tuskar Rock. Now topped by a lighthouse, ferries from France and the UK can be seen avoiding it daily en route to Rosslare Europort.

There is a large sheltered Barbeque patio to the southern end of the house that can be accessed directly from the balcony – a wonderful spot morning and evening.

About the Locality

Bing House is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac about 5 minutes by car from Rosslare Harbour, where there is a fine supermarket. The harbour is the main Ferry terminal for Ferries to France and South Wales, so there are multiple fine eateries and pubs within the area.

Wexford is home of the Irish Strawberry, you’ll find them for sale along the the roadside everywhere – delicious.

The Town of Wexford, a 20 minute drive away is the County Capital. Perhaps best known for hosting the country's premier opera event which plays to packed audiences over an 18 day annual spectacular.

Until the mid 19th century the extinct middle English dialect of Yola could be heard spoken in Wexford, and a few words still remain in use.

Tuskar rock

Tuskar Rock which can be seen clearly from the house, is actually a group of rocks around 11km out, topped by a lighthouse. Tidal currents are powerful at this point where two ocean currents meet. These rocks have been responsible for at least 167 wrecks, which is something of an Irish record. A huge number of ships and German U-boats were sunk off Wexford's coasts during the first World War. Tuskar is actually a Viking word, meaning “Large Rock” - rather unimaginatively.

Curracloe Beach just north of Wexford Harbour, was the location in 1997 for the opening scenes of the movie Saving Private Ryan.

The Lighthouse at the tip of the Hook Peninsula is one of the oldest operational lighthouses in the world. A 13th Century Norman structure, it is also one of the most fascinating examples of medieval architecture in Ireland.
The tower stands four stories high with walls up to 4m thick. The upper tier which is 6m in diameter originally supported the beacon fire, which was later replaced by the lantern. Fog guns which were situated at the cliff edge, were fired every 10 minutes.

The Irish National Heritage Park at Ferrycarrig includes various exhibits spanning 9000 years of Irish History, allowing the visitor to wander around re-creations of historic Irish dwellings.

ringfort

The privately owned Saltee Islands are situated approximately 5km off Kilmore Quay. A haven for sea birds including gannets, puffins and Manx shearwaters. Great Saltee is the most famous bird sanctuary in Ireland.

For golfers, St. Helen’s Golf Club is literally just across the road, but there is also a fine links at Rosslare strand.
