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.

We had limited time passing through Enniscorthy and had to decide what to see. We were exceptionally fortunate to decide on the Rebellion Centre. Sadly (or fortunately) there were very few people there when we visited. The room-by-room experience was incredibly well done taking you...More

While this is full of interactive exhibits (I'm generally not a bit fan of those) these are well done and I feel that I learned quite alot about Irish history. There was quite a bit of thought put into the displays. There is also a...More

Great audio visual displays. An enjoyable couple of hours if you take time to read the displays and listen to audios.

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.

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
