This ancient tollgate once guarded the western entrance of Wexford Town. Sir Stephen Devereux had it built in the 13th century on instructions from King Henry. Like other town gates, it consisted of a toll-taking area, cells for offenders, and rooms for guards. Fully restored as a heritage center, it presents artifacts uncovered around the town, and offers a rather long (nearly 30 min.) informational film, which provides an arguably overly informative look at Wexford's complex and turbulent history.
