County Roscommon

Boyle Abbey
Founded by monks in 1161, this is one of the best preserved abbeys in Ireland.

Lough Key Forest Park
One of the most extensive and picturesque forest parks in Ireland. Sights include a bog garden, observation tower, underground tunnels, and castle ruins.

Rossana Cruises
Sail along the Shannon in a longboat with a crew that recreates the atmosphere of the Viking era.

Strokestown Park House and Famine Museum
Museum, housed in the stable yards of Strokestown House, commemorating the Famine of the 1840s.

This manor house is one of the largest in Ireland. The architecture is spectacular and the scale is very impressive.

Roscommon Castle
The ruins (seen in the photo above) are one of the more interesting that you will come across. The castle was mammoth, evidenced by the ruins you can explore today. It sits in a field off the road to Dublin and it is definitely worth a stop to explore.
