Goat Hill, New Ross


Goat Hill (Irish: Cnoc na Gabhar) is a step-lined hill in New Ross County Wexford.

The stone steps may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need a hill in an urban location or for scenes that need a secluded urban setting. The modern stone steps are bordered by the old town walls on each side, which gives the spot a very private atmosphere. And the modern steps contrast nicely with the ancient walls, meaning that the location has a high visual quality. At the top of the steps, there is an open area that gets great views of the town and of the Barrow River.

The steps were installed in 2022 and the town walls were built in the 13th century. The steps feature iron handrails and archways, and there are 144 steps in total. The location is brightly lit at night. The steps lead from Creywell Street to the Bullawn.
