Described by James Joyce in Ulysses as ‘’the finest place in the world’’, this designated Heritage Town dates back 1500 years. Picturesquely facing on to the River Slaney, Enniscorthy played a key role in Ireland’s struggle for independence, especially during 1798 and 1916.  Two heritage trails link notable sites such as Vinegar Hill, the National 1798 Rebellion Centre, Enniscorthy Castle, the Athenaeum and Pugin’s Irish masterpiece, St Aidan’s Cathedral.  Come and visit us!
