These tapestries are evidence of the incredible skill of hundreds of expert Irish needleworkers depicting ancient Irish history. For those with any interest at all in ancient Irish history and/or craftwork this must not be missed. The humble building and location of this work (which is nearing completion after many years and thousands of working hours) is a mystery. This... More

This is a must-see for anyone interested in fibre arts. Having seen the Bayeux tapestry many years ago, this one is much more meaningful to me personally. The volunteers who have donated their time and effort are to be commended.

Most will stop and visit the Dunbrody Famine Ship but one would be making a big error if they did not divert across the road before or after their visit to the Dunbrody and visit the Ros Tapestry. 15 panels depicting the Norman Invasion to Ireland. All panels stitched by the community local to where the event took place. It... More

The idea sprang from the Bayeux Tapestry. It is the history of Ireland up to the Norman period. An absolute work of art by many volunteers.The luxury of sitting on a sofa or mobile chair while you studied the tapestry sections and listened to the audio was a real asset. The two ladies at reception were very friendly and informative... More

My friend and I went to see the Ros Tapestry Exhibition and were so glad we did. We both sew, embroider and do needle crafts, and found the panels to be works of art. The panels were stunning and the written history handout was very helpful. As others have said, it's a remarkable history lesson. The volunteers working the front... More

Absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful hand work created with pride and love! A must see! The ladies at the exhibit were full of info about the panels and history represented. They also took part in stitching the panels. Very friendly and helpful. These embroidered panels are exquisite works of art! Glad I experienced it!
