Hiking to the top of historic Vinegar Hill from the car park can scarcely be described as exercise; it's just 90m distance and 14m of ascent! However, looping down to the town of Enniscorthy and then taking the promenade that leads to a 3km gravel path along the River Slaney makes for a pleasant out-and-back experience, an escape from the rain-sodden Dublin/Wicklow area to the nearest bright skies that we could find. The views from Vinegar Hill are excellent. The wetlands along the river are a Special Area of Conservation and considered to be part of the Wexford Slobs Special Protection Area for birds. Brownswood House is a prominent feature on a hill on the opposite side of the river, the birthplace of Eileen Gray, the famous furniture designer.
