Vinegar Hill Battlefield
Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford
The most famous site of the 1798 Rebellion, its current peace, serenity and spectacular views believe its background as one of the bloodiest battlefields in Irish history. 20,000 men, women and children faced 10,000 members of the Crown forces in a battle that lasted only four hours, but left 1,500 dead in a county distraught.
Vinegar Hill is less than one hour from Waterford City and is 70 minutes from Kilkenny City.
