St Senan’s Hospital


St Senan’s Hospital is a former psychiatric hospital in Enniscorthy, County Wexford.

The hospital may be an ideal filming location for scenes set in period institutions or for scenes that need a spooky and abandoned building. The hospital was built in 1868, and was used up until 2015 as a psychiatric hospital. The hospital is large, set on its own grounds, and has a beautiful and untouched 19th century facade. There are many wards, rooms, corridors, stairwells, and even towers for filmmakers to make use of. Due to reduced use over the years, parts of the location fell into disrepair even before the hospital closed. The disrepair adds character to the building that may help filmmakers who are looking for unsettling or spooky locations.

The hospital was designed in the Italianate style by James Bell and James Barry Farrell. The building has three stories and covers 12,077sq m. It sits on a hill just outside Enniscorthy that overlooks the main road and the River Slaney. At its height, the hospital held up to 570 patients.

The location was recently purchased by a private owner and is going through refurbishments.
