Ros Tapestry

"Reported to be Europe's largest embroidered tapestry it consists of 15 large panels telling the story from Celtic Ireland to the events which led to the arrival of the Normans to Ireland (1169 - Bannow Bay) and the subsequent founding of the Port of Ros by William Marshal & his wife Isabel de Clare. The idea for the tapestry was developed in 1998 and it has been completely hand crafted by more than 150 local and very loyal embrioderers from Co.Wexford and Southeast Ireland. The tapestry is exquisite;  It is  beautifully coloured and presents images of medieval life in Ireland.  Having completed the tour of the Ros Tapestry visitors can take the short walk across the road to the now famous and well known Dunbrody Ship.

National 1798 Visitor Centre and Vinegar Hill

Appropriately situated in the shadow of Vinegar - the 1798 Visitor Centre is a very short walk (approx 1/2km from the centre of Enniscorthy town. The Visitor Centre gives an excellent account of the 1798 Rebellion and its after effects on lives in the county - using the multi-media and interactive exhibits. An audio-visual presentation will hold the attention of children and older guests alike. 

Vinegar Hill has an iconic view of Enniscorthy and was the location during the Rebellion of 1798 where Irish insurgents, led by Father Murphy, encamped on the hill and flew their banner from the windmill. The shell of the windmill remains today.
