Enniscorthy Castle

From The Riverside Park Hotel

Follow the footsteps of Anglo-Norman knights, Gaelic Irish kings and Elizabethan adventurers as you uncover the story of Enniscorthy Castle. Exhibitions explore the development of the castle and town from its earliest Anglo-Norman origins up until its use as a family home in the early 20th century.

Unique displays include areas dedicated to The 1916 Rising in Enniscorthy, (the only town to rise outside of Dublin), as well as the work of the renowned Irish furniture designer and architect Eileen Gray.

Enniscorthy Castle is one of the few Irish castles to offer access to its roof where a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside awaits. If you would like to go down below, descend to the deeps of the eerie dungeon and view Ireland’s rarest wall art which depicts a medieval soldier who was imprisoned in the dungeons over 400 years ago.
