Roscommon

County Roscommon is known for it rolling hills of rich farmland, raised bogland and many fishing lakes.

During the Irish Famine (1845-1848) the county suffered severly as many people died and more fled overseas when the potato harvest failed due to blight. Strokestown Park House has a fine famine museum which provides an insight into the lives of the those who experienced this terrible period in Irish history.

For visitors seeking an active experience an essential stop is Lough Key Forest Park. The park is more than 840 acres and includes nature trails, ancient ring forts and historic monuments, river cruising, lake fishing, picnic grounds an old ice-house. Accommmodation is available at the caravan and camping park. Don't be surprised if you spot deer wandering through the park either s the park is an ideal place to see local wildlife. The forest park is is situated only 8 km east of the town of Boyle.

Another great attraction to visit is Clonalis House. This victorian manor situated outside of Castlerea, is the ancestral home of the O'Conors who were the last High Kings of Ireland and Kings of Connaught. The O'Conors clan heritage extends back over 1500 years and the some of the ruins of their 17th century home can still be viewed in the grounds.
