The Old Thatch must be one of the oldest licensed premises in Ireland. At Castlemartyr Quarter sessions in 1867 the then owner of the premises, John Conway applied for a renewal of his licence. It was refused on the grounds that the premises were being used to harbour Fenians. He stated in his submission that his house had been licences for over two hundred years without complaint. Nevertheless, the presiding magistrate withheld the licence. The present owners the Sweeney family can trace ownership as far back as the mid 1700's.

“A good place to stop!”

Reviewed May 21, 2013

We travelled across Ireland from West Cork to Wexford and needed a place to eat where we could easily park our car and boat trailer. Had noticed the Old Thatch before and decided to try. In summary, good wine, good beer, great staff and above all else fantastic food. We had the chicken club sandwich, the hot beef sandwich, the salmon fishcakes and roast rib of beef. All of us said we WILL stop here again.
