Home of Queen Maeve

World Heritage Status Nominee, Royal Sites of Ireland 2010

Experience the Home of Celtic Warrior Queen Medb, Goddess Morrigan, the Cattle Raid of Cooley, and inaugural seat of Gaelic Royalty – this is the Land of Legends for over 5,000 years.

In coming years, the Rathcroghan Royal Complex will stand alongside Newgrange and Tara as a place through which Irish and international visitors can connect with our ancestors and ancient past, a place for YOU to find your Irish Roots.

If you’re looking for things to do in the West of Ireland, a stop at the Rathcroghan Visitor Centre, in Tulsk, Co. Roscommon, is a must. This is the Key to Connaught Heritage, and the brand new exhibition (open from 1st April 2014) brings to life the Rathcroghan Complex – an area with over 5,000 years of Legends, and over 200 sites.

Just 45 minutes from Knock Airport, we are the only official Rathcroghan Guided Tours and Visitor Centre, approved by the Office of Public Works and Roscommon County Council.
