The Pearse Museum is situated in the ground of St Enda's Park, one of Dublin City's most charming and atmospheric parks, with its riverside walks, unique follies, waterfall and walled garden. Set in nearly 50 acres of beautiful parkland, the museum tells the story of Patrick Pearse and his brother William, both of whom were executed for their part in the 1916 Rising.
