March Just Ask Restaurant of the Month: The Wilds, Enniscorthy, Wexford [SPON]

“Destination” is a word that keeps coming up as we sit down with Paula and Simon, owners of The Wilds in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford. Housed within a former convent school, later a hospital until it fell to disrepair towards the end of the last century, the restored building now enjoys a fresh lease of life as a bustling cafe and lofty designer lifestyle store, but it’s a ‘destination’ in every sense of the word.

“The Wilds is a little off the beaten track – not even the fact it’s in a town in Wexford, but also that the building is up a steep hill so semi-out-of-the-town as it is,” Paula explains, “so it’s both a destination to get to but it’s also a destination for everything it offers, so it’s worth the journey wherever people arrive from.” Why ‘The Wilds’? For the exact same reason – the pair tell us that when people heard they were moving home and asked where they were going to base themselves, they often jokingly quipped “the wilds of Wexford” and something about it just stuck.
