And now, some more detail on what awaits you at Serenity...

For your comfort...

There are orthopaedic mattresses on both king size beds in our Forest View and Mountain View Rooms, and a comfort mattress on the bed in our River View Single Room.

Should the pillows on your bed not be the type you desire, we offer a range of pillow types, including firm, soft, neck support, feather.

All bed linen is freshly washed and outdoor dried in the Wexford sunshine after each guest departs.

Extra duvets and pillows are available in a storage bag under each bed.

 

Breakfast…

At Serenity we don't believe in rushing you out of bed in the morning for breakfast. That's why you can enjoy breakfast anytime between 9:00am and 12:00 noon (cold breakfast available earlier). Breakfast is included in most room rates.

As a relaxation retreat, we promise guests a lie-in in the morning without disturbances. No matter how quiet we or other guests are, early breakfasts disturb those who are here to have a good night's sleep. Thank you for your understanding that for these reasons, early breakfasts are not possible. For guests leaving early (e.g. on the ferry), we offer a packed lunch option.

Your breakfast may be served in our dining room, on our deck or patio.

 

Tea & Coffee…

A wide selection of tea and coffee is served complimentary all day long upon request. These include regular and decaf versions of tea and coffee, fruit teas, green teas, Rooibosch (Red Bush) and tea blends. This may be enjoyed in the dining room, on the deck or brought to your room. 

 

For your wellbeing...

Having trouble unwinding? Difficulty sleeping? Worries of life, work and the world getting you down? At Serenity we will help you relax by creating the perfect calming atmosphere.

We believe in the power of aromatherapy and relaxing sounds to calm the mind, body and spirit. We have consulted an experienced and qualified aromatherapist to help us create an atmosphere of relaxation through the use of carefully selected aromas which are burned throughout the house as either aroma oils or incense sticks, coupled with chill-out sounds.

At different times of the day, we burn different aromas.

On arrival at Serenity and in the evenings, we burn lavender, chamomile, ylang ylang and sandalwood to aide relaxation and a goodnight's sleep.

In the mornings and early afternoon, we burn more upbeat aromas such as may chang, nag champa and cinnamon.

In our outdoor areas, we burn citronella and tea trea to keep the bugs away!

We import our incense sticks from Hyderabad in southern India and we find this extremely high-quality incense is powerful without being overbearing. We hope you agree!

You may personally choose the particular aromas and sounds that will help create a relaxing atmosphere of Serenity...

We have thousands of songs, prepared into dozens of playlists for you to enjoy, together with dozens of aromatherapy oils and sticks.

A personal music player and incense sticks/aromatherapy oil burner is available for your room for private relaxation upon request.

 

AromaBath…

Picture it. You have just arrived, checked in and enjoyed a delicious cup of much needed coffee. Now you would love nothing more than to soak away the stress of work and city life in a nice, hot, aromatic bath. At Serenity, we will prepare an aromatherapy bath, in our large free-standing Victorian style slipper bath, on demand throughout the day and evening. Let your aches soak away...

Why not even SMS us when you are on your way back from the beach or shopping, and we can have your bath drawn and ready for you to step into? Choose from several relaxing music playlists to help you unwind, together with candles and aromatherapy oils and incense sticks. 

The AromaBath is a favourite for couples to share. An extra charge applies for the AromaBath.

We will prepare the AromaBath with relaxing sounds and aromas (Ylang Ylang, Lavendar and Sandlewood), together with candles to set the mood. You may choose from quality bath salts and foams that will help you relax and unwind.

Nearby attractions...

We are within walking distance of Camolin Park, hundreds of acres of forest with countless trails for you to wander through.

Local pubs and traditional story tellers are a 15-30 minute walk or 2 minute drive away. Pub grub is served daily. Drop of/collection at the local traditional country pubs can be arranged by a local taxi service (usually around €10).

 

Retail therapy...

We are situated halfway between Gorey and Enniscorthy, both offering streets full of large chain stores and smaller country fare, as well as modern shopping malls.

What most Dublin retailers won't tell you is that most household goods are significantly better value in County Wexford. Save a bundle on furniture and electrical. Most stores will beat any Dublin price quote. Please ask for details of stores we have bought from and saved from.

 

For this beautiful planet...

You may opt to make your journey to Serenity carbon neutral. Should you wish, you may add €5 to your final bill which we will use solely for the purchase of plants and trees for the gardens around Serenity, helping redress the balance.
