1798 Rebellion Centre


Have you heard about the flames of the Revolution in America and France? Ireland is ever so rich in history and due to many past events, particularly what happened during 1798, it is all fully engraved in the memoirs forever. You must absolutely go and visit the National 1798 Rebellion Centre. The 'Rebellion Experience' is not to be missed out on, as in a very unusual way, it shares with visitors what really happened. You might even get to meet the key figures of the Rebellion during your visit! You will also be able to experience many other adventures, such as discovering how the traditional weapons from that period used to work, live and experience a 4D battle of Vinegar Hill, or learn about some very exciting and unknown stories.*


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.
