Overview

One of the great visitor attractions in County Wexford.... Fanned by flames of Revolution in America and France, the events of 1798 in Ireland are etched forever on the annals of Irish history. Vividly re-told in an exciting interpretation of events the "Rebellion Experience" at The National 1798 Rebellion Centre is not to be missed. On your visit you will learn in gruesome detail how some 20,000 insurgents faced the might of 10,000 well-trained and well-armed Crown Forces, and learn the significance of the nearby Vinegar Hill Battlefield.

The re-enactment of Vingear Hill battle is creepy but extremely well done and brings home horror of the war for the ordinary people. Brings it to life which is great for secondary school students. Very well done. Should be supported more. Staff great.

Great place to visit, one of my favourite historical centres, it is great for children as they can dress up. The short film may be a little loud and frightening for younger children, my 5 year old wanted out. Definitely recommend a visit

If you are visiting Enniscothy this is the must visit attraction. It gives the full story of the 1798 Rebellion through audiovisual exhibitions & a 4D interactive experience.It is a 10 minute walk from the Castle but is well worth the walk to find.

Sorry for delay in replying. Cross the river and climb steep road towards castle. Follow signs for New Ross and in half a mile you'll see a sign to turn sharp right and you're there
