Enniscorthy Castle is a late 16th century castle and museum in Enniscorthy, County Wexford, Ireland.
The old stone castle may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need a castle in an urban location or for interior scenes that are set in a castle or stately home. The castle is a museum and it has exhibits that show the different eras of its history. This includes rooms and spaces from the Norman period all the way up to the turn of the 20th century. The castle was used as a private home in the early 20th century and the museum has rooms more or less untouched from when they were lived in.
The castle was built in 1585. It was refurbished by the Roche family in the early 20th century and had been used as a family home until 1951, when it was sold. Also covered by the museum is Enniscorthy’s industrial history, the works of Enniscorthy designer, Eileen Gray, and local writer, Colm Tóibín.
The roof is accessible with permission and gets great views of Enniscorthy on three sides.
