Visit the Ros Tapestry in Wexford

The Ros Tapestry is a unique project that has been ongoing in the South East of Ireland since 1998 and has involved over 150 stitchers working on 15 very large tapestries for a permanent exhibition in New Ross. It is an excellent example of creativity and community spirit on a grand scale and depicts our Norman history, linking many of the Norman sites in Ireland’s Ancient East. It is one of the largest series of embroidered tapestries in Europe. Each tapestry depicts a different significant event in the history of the town and surrounding areas. New Ross is central to at least four counties which were heavily influenced by the Normans – Wexford, Waterford, Kilkenny and Carlow, and their tales are richly told in thread within the Ros Tapestries.

What are the opening hours?

You’re in luck! The centre is open every single day; seven days a week. The opening times are 10:00 to 17:00, from Monday to Saturday, and 11:00 to 15:00 on Sundays.

The first tapestry was completed in 2002 and to date 14 of the 15 tapestries are finished. The final one is being stitched in Kilkenny and is nearing completion. As work progressed it became obvious that the tapestries were too large to display in the church, and so in 2009 the Ros Tapestry Exhibition was opened on the Quay in New Ross. Everyone can now see this amazing exhibition which is a fantastic legacy for the country, combining as it does wonderful art, admirable craftsmanship, and a multitude of fascinating stories.
