#2 of 12 in Things to do in Enniscorthy
Fanned by flames of Revolution in America and France, the events of 1798 in Ireland are forever etched on Irish history. Vividly re-told in an exciting interpretation of events, the Centre is an experience not to be missed.
To plan Enniscorthy vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Magic exhibit, we visited Tues 15th last, and it's a fine record of history we never knew. Very worthwhile visit. The wife felt the staff were a little at odds with each other or somewhat muddled but ...  more »

  • The best museum in Europe and yet little known. As a local and a European traveller both, I have never seen such a high quality professional exhibition, as this one. The inter-activity is wonderful, the reading plentiful, the battle scenes beyond comparison, the staff outstanding. 5 Stars!
  • By far one of the best museums I ever visited. My children (16 and 9 years old) were complaining about "going to another museum" but they stopped when they saw the very beginning of the exhibition. The videos, interactivity and the way the story was told made it really interesting. The story itself was greatly led throughout the rooms and throughout the history. It made the Rebellion easy to understand and comprehend. Definitely would recommend not only to history lovers.
  • Very informative and well put together. It's worth taking the time to read and listen to as much content as possible. Small children may get bored but there is plenty of video content and exhibits for them to see.
  • One of the best museums in Ireland, fantastic set up, pity its closing for good this September, visit while you can
  • Learned quite a few things here, helpful staff, interesting exibits and a well kept memorial to the fallen Irish UN soldiers.
