Pearse Museum

The Pearse Museum was formerly the Irish speaking St. Enda's School, a secondary school set up by Irish patriot and executed rebel leader Patrick Pearse. Pearse was opposed to a contemporary British education system he believed taught Irish boys how to be good Englishmen. St. Enda's was established at Cullenswood House and the emphasis of its cirriculum had a heavily Irish nationalist tone which encouraged many of its students to subsequently take up arms in the 1916 Rising and the Irish War of Independence.

Among the exhibits at the Pearse Museum are a nature study room concentrating on Irish flora and fauna and an audio-visual show about Pearse and St. Enda's 'This Man Kept A School.' The grounds of the school is St. Enda's Park with walks, a waterfall and a walled garden.
