It was here that Patrick Pearse, writer, educator and leader of the 1916 Rising built a cottage for himself on the shores of Loch Oiriúlach in 1909.
The Ionad Cultúrtha an Phiarsaigh, located in Ros Muc, is a visitor centre which houses a fascinating interactive exhibition that explores Pearse’s legacy and the things that drew him to Connemara, the area’s unique landscape and history, and the ancient gaelic culture and language which is still alive in the area today. From the centre you can take a short stroll across the bog up to Pearse’s cottage itself, left just as it was when he departed for the final time in 1915, and meet the local guides who are steeped in Connemara’s vibrant culture.
After learning about the local history and culture be sure to finish your visit by sampling the local delicacies at the café!
