Discover Ireland’s Ancient East in the heart of Roscrea with a visit to Roscrea Castle and Damer House. The stone castle consists of a gate tower, curtain walls and two corner towers dating from the 1280.

Damer House was built in the Queen Anne style in the 18th Century and is an example of pre-Palladian architecture. Its rooms house temporary exhibitions, with one furnished in period style. There’s also a restored mill displaying the original St Cronan’s high cross and pillar stone. Open daily from March to September, the average visit lasts one hour.
