Roscrea is a town with a strong identity and a long and wonderful history full of intrigue and suspense. Coupled with this, Roscrea is a proud town rich in culture and tradition. Visitors are always welcome. Be assured Roscrea won’t leave the inquisitive mind disappointed.
 
Here in the heart of the midlands, Roscrea is one the oldest and most historic towns in Ireland. For thousands of years people have lived in the valley between the Slieve Bloom and the Devils bit mountains. The antiquities and monuments date as far back as the Stone Age and every succeeding age has left its own unique mark on the town and district. The town can trace its roots back to three of the sources our ancient towns have come from, the Aonach, the monastery and the castle. Because of this diversity in origin Roscrea has a wide variety of monuments and stories such as Monaincha, the thirty-first wonder of the world, and Aonach Éile, the great fair of Ely that merchants would come from foreign lands to see. Nowadays these amazing monuments stand as mute sentinels, reminding us of a history and culture.
