Teach an Phiarsaigh or otherwise known as Pearse’s Cottage, is a small restored cottage located in Ros Muc, which was used as a summer home for Patrick Pearse (1879 – 1916), leader of the 1916 Rising. 

During the War of Independence, the interior of the cottage was burnt but has since been reconstructed and now contains an exhibition and a number of mementos of Pearse. The cottage was also used as a summer school for Pearse’s pupils from St Enda’s in Dublin. This historical attraction is also a key ‘discovery point’ on the Wild Atlantic Way route.
