Ionad Cultúrtha an Phiarsaigh is located in Ros Muc, in the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht, on the Wild Atlantic Way.

This state-of-the-art visitor centre celebrates the culture, and landscape of the Connemara Gaeltacht. The area’s unique heritage attracted Patrick Pearse, leader of the 1916 Rising, to spend his summers here in the early 20th century.

Visitors can explore the interactive exhibition, and then take a short stroll through the landscape, up to Pearse’s original cottage, which he had built in 1909.
