Working to preserve our heritage while creating an environment that fuels creativity, ignites minds and renews dialogue between past and present
Welcome to the brand new 171 WX Enniscorthy Athenaeum Historic Theatre and Museum website. The Athenaeum was extensively restored and refurbished in 2016 as one of nine national ‘Permanent Reminder’ projects of the 1916-2016 centenary commemorations
The Museum houses the 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 back in action with Enniscorthy Musical Society returning to the stage and Enniscorthy Drama Group back treading the boards again.
