County Roscommon is part of the province of Connacht, in the Republic of Ireland. It is an inland county with the River Shannon to the east and the River Suck to the west. The county was designated in 1569 and takes its name from its major town Roscommon. Roscommon Town is a busy midland market town.
Roscommon Castle is an Anglo-Norman fortress, dating back to 1269. The building, now in ruins, is quadrangular in shape, only one of its two gate towers remains. There is a Dominican Friary, also dating from the 13th century and now in ruins, located just outside the town.
The county is home to the Famine Museum, the only museum in the country dedicated to the Great Irish Famine of the 1840s. The Famine is considered to be the single greatest disaster in 19th century European history. The museum is located in the stable yards of Strokestown Park and offers the visitor an extensive account of this great tragedy that saw the death of some one million Irish people and the emigration of many more.
Roscommon is home to some beautiful low-lying countryside and lakes. The town of Boyle is home to one of Ireland's principal lakeside attractions, Lough Key Forest Park. It offers nature walks, ring forts, cruising, fishing, a bog-garden, picnic grounds and a fully serviced caravan and camping site. Herds of deer are often seen wandering freely through the park.
