South Roscommon Heritage Guide 22 hidden gems to discover
The South Roscommon Heritage Guide contains 22 of the best heritage sites located in South Roscommon. Some are well known, others are hidden gems, all are an essential part of our past and of Roscommon’s rich heritage. We hope you enjoy visiting some if not all of them. Richard Collins of (the now former) St. John’s House B&B in Rindoon and Nollaig Feeney, Heritage Officer for County Roscommon have shared their joint passion for the heritage of their environs with this wonderful heritage guide. All of the places you might have heard of, as well as a few you’ll be glad to know of are included here. It’s a great addition to finding these hidden gems in the heart of Ireland.
The sites are of course for you to decide on, but based on proximity and what can realistically be covered in a day allowing for time out and lunch, we’ve divided the points of interest into bunches allowing for daily itineraries: Day One: Points 1-5 Knockcroghery and Lecarrow. Day Two: Points 6-10 Roscommon Town. Day Three: Points 11-16 The Suck Valley. Day Four: Points 17-22 Down to the Shannon. Tips: The places listed on this Trail are spread out over 25 miles. A serious cyclist would be able to cover these places, but for someone hoping to enjoy a leisurely few days, we’d recommend driving.
