If you are looking for a place where you can feel the spirit of the medieval ages, then King House is great choice. King House is a magnificently restored Georgian Mansion built around 1730 for Sir Henry King. His family was one of the most powerful and wealthy in Ireland.
At the end of the 19th century, the House became a military barracks for the Connaught Rangers until 1922. After that it has been used as a merchant store, before being restored to its original Georgian style by Roscommon County Council.
