The house is the former home and school of Patrick Pearse, the leader of the 1916 Rising. He moved Scoil Eanna, his progressive Irish language school to what was the edge of the city in 1910 and it was in this house that much of the planning for the Rising took place. Pearse believed that the elegant 18th century mansion, set in its romantic grounds, within close proximity to the wild landscape of the Dublin Mountains, would provide a suitably inspirational setting for his school. Today visitors can see the room and original school museum and gallery, which contain many original artworks from the school including pieces by Jack Yeats, Casimir Markievicz, Beatrice Elvery, Patrick Tuohy and William Pearse. See Open House Plus for a walking tour of the follies of St. Enda’s Park.
