Telling the story of the Irish Great Hunger

Strokestown Park House is an 18th century mansion in Co. Roscommon that retains its original furnishings and documents. This evocative estate is a capsule in time showcasing an Irish ‘Big House’ and Georgian Ireland in its purist form. A tour of the house gives an intimate insight into life in The Big House, upstairs and downstairs.

The walled garden takes you back to the glorious surroundings of a planned Georgian estate and gives a unique insight into horticultural practices and garden architecture from the 1740s to the present day.

The National Famine Museum tells a different story. Through original documents and personal accounts it helps visitors to reflect on Ireland’s darkest time. Family guides are available for the museum and the gardens.

This is an Irish Heritage Trust property.
