Some of the more famous and interesting arts and crafts in Ireland are to be found in the region.
Probably the most famous is Waterford Crystal which has an excellent visitor centre and show room. Waterford is 25 minutes from the Coachouse.
Other excellent centres include;
|The Ros Tapestry
is located opposite the Dunbrody ship on the Quays in New Ross. The
visitor centre features guided tours of a series of tapestries depicting
historical scenes from the New Ross area. The tapestries are beautifully
presented in baclit panels, showing off the rich colour of the threads to
great effect. Well worth a visit.

In the 19th century mass emmigration to America resulted from a series of harsh famines. The ships that carried these people across the Atlantic Ocean were the subject of legend themselves. The Dunbrody tall ship is a working replica famine ship. It is moored at the quays in New Ross, 10 minutes away from the Coachouse. The visitor centre also has a coffee shop and there are lists of the names of families that fled to America at the time .
|There are many other crafts to be found, exploring these is one of the joys of a visit to the area. Your hosts at the Coachouse will be pleased to advise you.|
