Working to preserve our heritage while creating an environment that fuels creativity, ignites minds and renews dialogue between past and present
The Athenaeum has been extensively restored and refurbished as one of nine national ‘Permanent Reminder’ projects of the 1916-2016 centenary commemorations.The Museum houses County Wexford’s 1916 archive collection – artefacts and documents.
The Athenaeum was built first and foremost as a town hall and theatre. The theatre is in full operation with Enniscorthy Musical Society, Enniscorthy Drama Group and Wexford Studio Theatre staging productions as well as concerts and conferences.
In June 2017 the Athenaeum hosted its first wedding ceremony. The theatre hall can accommodate 130 guests. Flowers, drinks reception, tea & coffee can be included in the room hire price.
