Strokestown & Around/Ireland

Introducing Strokestown & Around

Strokestown's main street is a grand tree-lined avenue that remains a testament to the lofty aspirations of one of the local landed gentry who wished it to be Europe's widest. It's a striking feature in what is a now a sleepy town most notable for its historic estate and Famine museum.

Over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend, the town bursts into life during the International Poetry Festival.
