West Gate Heritage Centre

Out of the five original fortified gates, only the west one remains. It was built by Sir Stephen Devereux around 1200 and closed to traffic around the end of the 16C. The Norman rooms in the tower provide access to a battlement walk to Selskar Abbey. An audio-visual presentation retraces Wexford's cosmopolitan history.
