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.
