Author's Review

Like Enniscorthy Castle, but even more so, the 1798 Rebellion Centre has exhibitions covering a large amount of subjects, pre-revolutionary Europe, the spread of revolution, the United Irishmen, the link between the battles in May and June 1798, Vinegar Hill, and life after the rebellion. All of these themes are talked about in great detail here and the amount of research that has gone into the 1798 Rebellion Centre is absolutely phenomenal, and I clearly couldn't of featured Enniscorthy castle without featuring this centre and vice versa. In fact, I wouldn't recommend visiting this centre without also visiting the castle and the link between both attractions is vastly important to gain a fuller picture of what actually happened in this part of Irish history. You will need to allow yourself a good couple of hours to visit the 1798 Rebellion Centre, although around a good hour or so for the castle.
