If you know the history of Ireland and 1798, this is a must stop in Enniscorthy, it's a small climb to the top but worth it, the view and just to stand there and think about what happened is well worth it.

A lovely peaceful spot with fantastic 360 views. Hard to imagine what went on there. Bring a picnic if the weather is nice as there is a lovely seating area.

Well worth the visit and walk to the top. A large car park with interesting explanation of the history of the site. I visited during the hot dry spell and could see for miles in each direction. A commanding location overlooking Enniscorthy.

Access to the hill car park is via a long single track country lane with virtually no passing places. Don't attempt it if reversing a car is not your forte. However, once you reach the car park there is ample parking. For the fit, I...More

If you get a decent day, this is definitely worth a visit. The historical aspect is sad as so many lots their lives but the scenery is amazing, you would sit there for hours and just move around a little to catch a different county.

We visited this spot to get a perspective on the early battles. But throughout the hill were many people walking their dogs, children exercising with their parents and lots and lots of conversation with the local people. Parking is available and on the small road...More
