Just a 15 minute drive away in New Ross is Europe’s largest embroidered Tapestry. It is made up of 15 large panels depicting stories from Celtic Ireland to the founding of the port of Ros by William Marshal & his wife Isabel de Clare. Opened in 1998, the Ros Tapestry has been completely handcrafted by more than 150 local embroiders from Co Wexford and Southeast Ireland. This is a truly unique exhibition providing a colourful and lively presentation of medieval Ireland.
