Enniscorthy Castle has reopened to visitors for the Spring season and is hosting a newly curated exhibition of textiles and designs across its 2nd floor space, its first exhibition of the year entitled The Fabric of Wexford: Industry and Innovation.
Newly appointed Manager of Enniscorthy Castle and National 1798 Rebellion Centre, Mico Hassett told WexfordLocal.com; “We are excited to reopen with a fresh look and hosting an in-house curated exhibition with local and international appeal. With this show, we are aiming to connect the past to the present in a new space, exploring ideas generated by our castle team and inviting guest curators to present themes in their areas of expertise.
Ms Hassett continued; “Creating opportunities to engage with both the community and visitors to Enniscorthy on a recurring basis is a key objective of Enniscorthy Castle’s strategic business plan for the year. We have a busy and varied programme to roll out and a great team (Board of Directors) to support us in our endeavours to attract even greater numbers to visit and enjoy Enniscorthy district”.
Deputy Manager Eve Furlong commented that entry to the exhibit is included in the Castles’ general admission tour ticket which at €6 per adult (€5 student /seniors) or only €15 for up to a family of five, is super value. Running through to April 24th the opening times are Monday to Friday, 9.30am- 5pm (with last tour 4.30pm) and on weekends Saturday/Sunday, 12 noon to 5pm.
