Visiting

Visit the Ros Tapestry in its permanent Exhibition Centre

After sixteen years in the making this permanent exhibition of the magnificent embroidered Ros Tapestry is now open to public viewing on a daily basis in a dedicated exhibition centre on the Quay in New Ross, County Wexford.

The dramatic story of Ireland’s romantic Norman past unfolds as this tale told in thread brings a significant part of Irish heritage to life through the depiction of the Normans arrival to the South East of Ireland and the consequential development of the dynamic Port of Ros in a visually enthralling setting.

This unique attraction is an exciting blend of innovative design that is an experience to be treasured. Visitors can browse through the fascinating historical resource at their leisure or with a guide, view a tapestry in the making first-hand or spend time in the design-oriented gift shop.

The Exhibition Centre is on the Quay, near the bridge end of the boardwalk, across the road from the Kennedy sculpture. There are several car parks on the Quay, and a pedestrian crossing right in front of us.
