There are high alcohol consumption rates in Wexford compared to other populations in Europe. The average Irish person over 15 years old drank the equivalent of 10.93 litres of pure alcohol in 2015. In comparison to other Irish counties, Wexford had relatively low alcohol consumption rates in 2011.

Despite this, the number of patients admitted to treatment services for problem alcohol use in Wexford was high compared to other counties in Ireland, in 2012. In 2014, among drinkers in Ireland aged 18-75 6.9% were found to be dependent on alcohol.

Alcohol dependence was most common for 18-24 year olds (14.7%). Over-consumption of alcohol has tragic results, with the rate of alcohol-related liver disease trebling in Ireland between 1995 and 2013.
