Enniskerry Village
Enniskerry Village


Enniskerry Village (Ath na Sceire ‘Ford of the Stones’) was built as part of Powerscourt Estate to house its tenants who worked the land in the area. The village was designed and laid out by the architect Frederick Darragh. Subsequently, the village changed rapidly after the arrival of the railway to Bray in 1854.

The Town Clock was built, at the expense of the 6th Viscount Powerscourt, to commemorate the centenary of the creation of first Viscount in 1743. The monument was presented to the Village on St. Patrick’s Day 1843. An interesting feature of the monument is that its base is shamrock shaped. There was a massive tree at the bottom of the Town Clock steps until the 1920s as can be seen in old photos of the square.
