Roscrea has a proud and ancient history going back many centuries. A great way to explore Roscrea is the Heritage Walk, starting at the restored 13th century Castle in the town centre.Take time to see the 2th century West Gable, facsimile High Cross,The Round Tower and the Black Mills at Church Street. At the Black Mills you will see several local artifacts including the original High Cross and the Timoney Stone. Do also visit Monaincha and Sean Ross Abbeys at the eastern side of the town.
Within the town itself, you will find the 15th century Franciscan Friary. 4km from the town you will cherish our surviving monastery, Mount St. Joseph’s Cistercian Abbey - a haven of peace and tranquility. A busy market town and the core of a rich agricultural area, with traditional shop - fronts, pubs and clubs, Roscrea is a great place to stay and explore the whole midland region.
