Hemmed in by the River Shannon to the east and her extensive tributaries on all sides, Roscommon County gleams like green silk threaded by shimmering blue strands. County Roscommon boasts splendid preserved forests in Lough Key Forest Park; the abundant wildlife, lakes, medieval priories and a castle make it a photographer’s and nature enthusiast’s paradise. While Roscommon city is an energetic market town with pubs filled with happy locals, just beyond its bounds are several golf clubs and rivers with quiet fishing spots.
Since Roscommon County is sparsely populated its treasures are sometimes hidden to travelers accustomed to the city life but once her forests, castles and idyllic streams are experienced—Roscommon is recognized as one of Ireland’s most beautiful counties. Prized by the ancients as well, Rathcroghan, a complex of archaeological site near Tulsk, was once home to the high kings of Ireland and can be easily traveled to from a Roscommon vacation home or a Roscommon vacation rental.
