Templetown is marked as a place to visit on the Wexford Coastal Path

Templetown: The Knights Templars were founded by the Crusaders in Jerusalem in the early 12th century. In 1172 King Henry II of England granted extensive lands to the Templars along the eastern shore of Waterford Harbour. Here they set up their headquarters at Templetown, from which the name is derived. All that remains of the

 

Templetown: The Templars were disbanded in 1307 and their lands given to their great rivals the Knights Hospitallers who built this fortified church, whose ruins you see today. They also founded and built the nearby castle at Kilcloggan and see also Ballyhack Castle.

 

Templetown: The church tower is castellated, like the battlements of a castle! i.e. a fortified church!

All that remains of the Hospitaller church is the Norman Tower.

 There are trace remains of the old church to the south of the tower and the ruin of an early 19th century church to the north (left in picture above).

 

Templetown: The memorial stones showing the burial of three British sailors from the 'Great War' i.e. the First World War. The first two are unnamed, but the 3rd is the grave of T. M. Fyfe. The three seamen were serving on board H.M TRAWLER GEORGE MILBURN on the 12th July 1917

 

Templetown: Just across the road is the TEMPLARS INN which offers traditional hospitality as a bar and seafood restaurant. You can eat outside with fine panoramic views of Templeton Bay. A great selection of food from traditional Irish recipes from local produce and seafood specialities.
