If you know the history of Ireland and 1798, this is a must stop in Enniscorthy, it's a small climb to the top but worth it, the view and just to stand there and think about what happened is well worth it.

A lovely peaceful spot with fantastic 360 views. Hard to imagine what went on there. Bring a picnic if the weather is nice as there is a lovely seating area.
