I don't think it will be right time to visit Ireland during winters.
I have been to there during summers which is ideal time But winters get too much rain
anyways temperature would be around 5C
You can stay in Treacys Hotel its a good place to stay or Kelly's Resort Hotel & Spa
New year you can celebrate in local nite club each county in Wexford have large number of pubs and discos so plan to visit any of these
for online booking of wexford hotels you can visit http://www.goireland.com/wexford/ or discoverireland.com

[ Edit: Sorry, no promos please. ]

It depends where in Co Wexford you're heading. Wexford Town itself, or other towns in the county? Note that Kelly's Hotel recommended by Jacob is in Rosslare Strand, about 15-20 mins drive away from Wexford town, and if I recall correctly it closes down for winter. While I don't know much about Treacy's Hotel, it's in Enniscorthy, which is about 25-30 minutes drive away.

For more central accommodation in Wexford town itself, you could look into White's Hotel, or Talbot's Hotel, or Riverbank Hotel. There are also quite a number of B&B's around, even within 10-15 minutes walk from the town.

It will be relatively cool in Wexford during New Year, and it's not particularly wet to be honest. But weather forecast is never a sure thing. Like today, we've been getting snow on-off for most of the day in Dublin. And my brother told me it's snowing in Wexford too. This is certainly not something we've seen in the last few years, to get snow at this time of year.
