About
One of the great visitor attractions in County Wexford.... Fanned by flames of Revolution in America and France, the events of 1798 in Ireland are etched forever on the annals of Irish history. Vividly re-told in an exciting interpretation of events the "Rebellion Experience" at The National 1798 Rebellion Centre is not to be missed. On your visit you will learn in gruesome detail how some 20,000 insurgents faced the might of 10,000 well-trained and well-armed Crown Forces, and learn the significance of the nearby Vinegar Hill Battlefield.

We visited during our recent stay in Enniscorthy it was excellent. Our 15 year old son loved the interactive part especially. I learned more about Irish history and would recommend this attraction.

This was a very interesting and very moving experience. Learned a lot about what happened in 1798 and the movement towards democracy. The installations are compelling and you are invited through the whole exhibition by audio video experience. It is exceptionally moving especially the section on Vinegar Hill. 1,500 people died women children and injured left there for months afterward. This is well worth a visit .

On our way to Waterford from Wicklow, we stopped by The National 1798 Rebellion Centre, in Enniscorthy. The display galleries channel you through the lead up to 1798, with the roles the American and French Revolution had in it. Some of the graphics are quite well done and there is plenty to read and dwell on. Our stop was just about an hour and well worth the entrance fee.

1798 Rebellion Centre was very interesting and well worth the visit. Very kind and helpful staff on the day of our visit. It inspired us then to visit the Fr Murphy Exhibition and Vinegar Hill that afternoon. All 3 well worth the trip.
