Called in the hope of some photographs.
Good clean carpark and a tarred path to the top.
Good 360 views but slightly hazy on day of visit.

Visiting this site was a highlight of my recent holiday in Wexford. The views are exceptional. Completed our experience of 1798.

Lovely view and a nice walk
Dec 2019
It was a very nice walk. Please take comfy shoes (no high heels), something you will not slip in. This hill provides stunning views and is also important from historical point of view. I see comments from other people and I have to laugh- that this place lacks toilets and coffee shops- well, because it´s nature and we do not have to cover every piece of land with shops and restaurants!!! It can be very windy up there, take a hat!

Stunning views.

If you drive to the car park it's only a 2 minute walk up a paved path to the top. We walked from the village and while it's a steep climb it only takes about 45 mins and gives you a feel for what the people of the time faced - although the terrain was probably much rougher for them.
I would recommend visiting the 1978 Rebellion centre first as you would have a better appreciation of Vinegar Hill and the battle.

Standing on history
Aug 2019 • Family
Vinegar Hill today is obviously a very different place to the battle ground of 1798 but having visited the 1798 Exhibition Centre earlier in the day I was quite moved to be there. It is quite an easy walk up the wide path which is wheelchair/buggy friendly to the grassy top. The rocky peak can be climbed. The views are wonderful.

A lovely 365 view of Wexford....steep incline so a certain fitness level would be needed but worth the climb for the stunning views.

Real life history under your feet
Jun 2019 • Couples
In June of 1798 during the Rebellion, 13,000 British soldiers attacked the Irish Rebels holding Vinegar Hill. A battle took place on the hill and throughout the town of Enniscorthy. If you are into history at all you need to stand up there and soak it all in. If you are not into history, the views alone are worth the short walk from the parking area. History fans...I highly recommend listening to the song "Vinegar Hill" by the band Black 47 while you're up there. I did that and it was a very cool moment.
