Roscommon is steeped in history, with many important archaeological sites in the county that date back to more than 4,500BC. Irish mythological tales of Queen Medb and An Táin Bó Cúail nge, together with captivating stories of the dynastic families of McDermott, O’Connor and King, are all brought to life in our castles, stately homes and visitor centres. Museums demonstrate the important role that mining has played in the region over the centuries and recount the appalling tragedies experienced by communities and families during the Irish famine.
