Free Tours of King House

Patricia Golden
Roscommon County Council

King House is a restored Georgian mansion in Boyle. It is a unique visitor centre that not only tells the story of this important house as a home to the King family and later a barracks to the Connaught Rangers, but also displays important cultural collections and Irish history exhibitions.

A tour of King House is a walk through over 400 years of Irish history. We are proud to house the McAleese Collection and the Boyle Civic Art Collection at King House and we have a lovely exhibition dedicated to Boyle’s own Maureen O’Sullivan, who was born just yards from King House. See our website for more detail on the house and exhibitions.

You will find that our welcoming staff are very passionate about the history of King House and Boyle and are on hand to guide you through the house in a fun, informative way. A tour of the house will take you approximately 60 minutes, but we find most people stay for much longer as they explore this unique exhibition. Visitor Guides are available in French, German, Italian and Spanish.

Please contact the event organisers (details below) for the latest information regarding COVID-19 safety measures and to register for this event.
