Oulart Hill

 

Explore the world’s biggest 1798 monument, Tulach a’ tSolais and the most influential battlefield of the Rising. Savour the 3km-looped Jean Kennedy Smith Walk or the 10km Unyoke Walk. Enjoy the vast panoramas from these walks and also from the 0.5km Cosán na Glóire with its 21 memorials to 1798 battles. Experience the many facets of Oulart The ’98 Village, which has all facilities. Geocaches and treasure hunt for children.

Oulart Hill 1798 Battlefield Walking Hub:  Three walks, centred on Oulart Hill, share one of the most historic and scenic locations in Co. Wexford. The Unyoke Trail, through undulating farmland, includes 3km of the actual untouched medieval Wexford-Dublin coach road – a rare experience. It passes several sites of interest, all of which are interpreted for the walker, ending in the tiny hamlet of The Unyoke which has a caravan-camping park, shop and pub.

Cosán na Glóire (Path of Glory) runs gently across the level summit, by the battlefield to Tulach a’ tSolais. The Jean Kennedy Smith Trail is a looped walk from the hill to Oulart the ’98 Village. This walk includes both the Tree of Liberty planted by Jean Kennedy Smith in 1995 in honour of the ideals of the United Irishmen and Tulach a’ tSolais for which she turned the first sod in 1998.
