Patrick Pearse was an Irish national who devoted much of life promoting the Irish language. He set up an Irish school called St Enda's where his main objective was to create a love for the Irish language.

He was also a lawyer and became more and more interested in Irish politics, which led to his involvement in the Easter Rising of 1916. He was one of the leaders and subsequently was arrested and executed by firing squad.

The Pearse Museum is an 18th century house, where Patrick held his Irish language school. It is a small museum, dedicated to both Patrick Pearse and his brother William. Many of the rooms have been restored and include Pearse's study, the school art gallery, a dormitory and a room which displays Irish flora and fauna. There is also an audio-visual film called "This Man Kept a School" which tells the story of Pearse.

The museum is open every day of the week and admission is free. There is a café, which is open only at the weekends from May to September. In the summer season, outdoor concerts are held here.

The museum is situated in the beautiful, well maintained St Enda's Park, which has a walled garden and is located beside a river. It is a tranquil place with lots of paved pathways. The walks along the river are particularly beautiful, especially if the sun is out.
