Ionad Cultúrtha an Phiarsaigh is located in Ros Muc, in the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht, on the Wild Atlantic Way. It was here that Patrick Pearse, writer, educator and leader of the 1916 Rising built a cottage for himself on the shores of Loch Oiriúlach in 1909. The Visitor Centre houses a fascinating interactive exhibition dealing with Pearse's legacy, and exploring the things that drew Pearse to Connemara: the area's unique landscape and history, and the ancient gaelic culture and language which is still alive in the area today. We also celebrate 21st century Connemara, which maintain's the traditions of the past, while looking to the future. Visitors can then take the short stroll across the bog to visit Pearse's cottage itself, left just as it was when he left the cottage for the final time in 1915, and meet our local guides who are steeped in Connemara's vibrant culture.
