Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    An interesting and highly informative experience and a really excellent guide,Gerard, gave vivid and humour interlaced accounts of the life of a miner and the historical backdrop. It gave an idea of the difficult working conditions and the whole process involved in extracting coal and the lives of the miners generally.
    I recommend it and the lovely view of the surrounding area from the location,and the welcome coffee shop on site helped us on our way to explore the area further.

    This castle is part of historic Roscommon, and shows signs of being partially restored for safety and kept for future generations, it sits in a beautiful park which is a good space for those taking exercise and has a playground for younger children. Even in grey January the birds were singing and it was peaceful. There are helpful signs about the castle’s historic past and it was a pleasant way to pass time here. The castle was originally built in the 13th century for the English King Henry III and raided by Irish Kings of Connacht whose sculptural faces are part of the park’s decorative additions. Later it became a home rather than a stronghold, and the layout changed to provide formal gardens and “modern” amenities for the occupants.

    Beautiful a must if in most common, absolutely beautiful, tranquil, peaceful atmosphere. parking on site very central to town. You can light some candles. Say some prayers. I think they also do a tour as we seen turbos as in the car parked sadly the public toilets that said we belong to the church we’re not available if they were locked.

    The home of the Rossies, not a great place to visit if you're not into GAA. Despite Roscommon's lack of real success since 1940s they will probably still lift Sam before Mayo.

    The attraction is a sculptural memorial. Co. Roscommon was hard hit by the famine of 1840s. Of the places hard hit, Roscommon Workhouse was one of the worst. The Workhouse which still stands behind the sculpture, was built in 1843, to cater for the acute needs of the people of the area. There was a conflict between rate payers who paid for the workhouse and the non-rate-payers who needed the facilities.In December 1847 this workhouse was in £6,000 debt.The average number of occupants was 1,767 people while relief was given to 21,000in soup kitchens.
