This is a wonderful place to visit as it has so much to see.There is Saint John's castle recently restored and Damer house which like the castle has so much interesting history. The guides are very nice and very well versed and to finish you can relax in the gardens behind behind the big house . Great spot.

I was visiting Roscrea to have a get together with my family. I was informed by a restaurant close by that it would be well worth a visit. The castle is beautiful and Daner house is a great tour. Eileen was amazing, the kids loved the tour.

I'm not generally a supporter of the old walls but this castle which was built in the 14th century - really amazed me. Moreover, there is a beautiful garden. Small fee for admission. I recommend
