Enniscorthy Castle


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 a 1950s exhibition depicting small town Ireland which was the setting for Colm Toibin’s novel, Brooklyn, now also a film, 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. Or descend to the deeps of eerie dungeon and view Ireland’s rarest wall art which depicts a medieval soldier who was imprisoned in the dungeons over 400 years ago.
