Seán Mac Diarmada’s cottage is the jewel in Leitrim’s historic crown. You can visit the house of the 1916 Easter Rising leader Seán Mac Diarmada in Kiltyclogher, County Leitrim. This beautiful cottage is a designated National Monument, owned and maintained in its original condition by the Office of Public Works.

The cottage is of considerable historic importance as it is the only original existing home place of any of the seven signatories of the proclamation. It is also a fine example of a traditional Irish cottage, offering an insight to what life was like over 100 years ago. Seán Mac Diarmada played a pivotal role during Irelands most colourful and explosive part of Irish history, The 1916 Easter Rising. 

If you would like to learn more about Seán and his family please feel free to step back in time and join us on this wonderful tour.
