Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This site is nice to visit bit they could do more to make people understand the history and the site's importance. Visit the Rebellion museum first.

I've been coming to Wexford all my life and had never been up Vinegar Hill before. It's an easy drive up, although the lane gets very narrow, although there is plenty of visibility and spaces to pull in for oncoming cars.
The car park is a good size so finding a space shouldn't be an issue.
There are plenty of information boards explaining the significance of the hill before you have to walk the final 100 yards or so to the top. The views are great and look right across Enniscorthy. My 2 and 5 year old had no problem walking up so it is suitable for families or people who aren't particularly fit
Well worth a quick visit if nearby.

Such a great part of history and only 5min drive from Enniscourthy. The views are just breathtaking from this vantage point

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.

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!

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.

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.
