The first tapestry was completed in 2002 and to date 14 of the 15 tapestries are complete Our project is a unique and exquisite work of art and deserves to get huge exposure, and be available for everyone to enjoy.

Exceptional Craftsmanship of History
Aug 2019
The panel were outstandingly beautiful and showed the extraordinary craftsmanship of local talented "stitchers". The panels lay out a wonderful history of the foundation and development of New Ross. A must-see whenever in New Ross. Well worth a slow intake of this magnificent tribute to all involved.

The threads of history
Dec 2019 • Solo
I visited Ross Tapestry today found that this is a really
Interesting and artistic way to tell the early Norman history of New Ross. The tapestries are amazing and the pre-recorded voice overs are really well put together. Congrats to the team that have developed this attraction.

Definitely worth a visit
Aug 2019
I found this attraction on Tripadvisor and would highly recommend it. It was 10 euro to get in and you need at least 45 mins. If you can visit on a Monday or Tuesday you will see the stitchers at work - I was there on Wednesday but was able to go up the stairs and see the thread /looms/work in progress.
The audio guide is great, giving just enough information about each of the 16 tapestries. I'm not particularly into stitching but I still found it fascinating - the quality of the needlework as well as the unfolding history which the tapestries convey.
Toilets are clean and upstairs. We visited The Cracked Teapot around the corner for coffee afterwards and it too comes highly recommended.
Park across the road in the Pay and Display car park - 2 euro per hour.

Very skillful story telling via amazing tapestry work.

I expected to stay for 20 minutes but spent over an hour mesmerised by the story and the intricate needlework, it took over 15 years to create and I think is more fascinating than the Bayeux Tapestry

Very interesting attraction. As much as history as craft. And a nice thing to do on a rainy day. Just one warning. We turned up on a bank holiday when it said it was open and it wasn’t. But very glad we went back.

Fabulous! Fantastic! Wonderful!
What a treat to see the tapestries and be given such a comprehensive history of the area by the lovely Marion. And as we visited on a Tuesday we were fortunate to meet and talk with some of the stitchers. These tapestries deserve to be displayed in a magnificent setting.
A simply lovely day. Thank you.

Charming tapestries
Oct 2018 • Friends
A guided tour of this little facility is essential in order to understand the nature and provenance of the tapestries. On Mondays and Tuesdays the stitchers can be seen at work. An hour is needed to fully understand what has been developed here. There are two levels with no lift to the upper level.

This is amazing - we were mesmerized
Oct 2018 • Couples
I didn't quite know what to expect and neither did my husband. He reluctantly went with me. However, he was hooked as was I. An artist has drawn on linen, then artisans have sewn these designs. Very contemporary.The way they tell the story is mesmerizing. Great audio guide comes with the admission. Do not miss.
