Introducing County Roscommon

Studded with over 5000 megalithic tombs, ring forts and mounds, and home to a couple of excellent museums, enigmatic Roscommon is a haven for history buffs and shrouded in myth. Add to the mix a couple of well-preserved mansions and some wonderful monastic ruins and it's hard to understand why the county sees so few visitors. Beyond the romance of times past, Roscommon has plenty of rolling countryside splashed with lakes and cleaved by the Rivers Shannon and Suck; attributes much appreciated by visiting anglers.
