Roscommon : Michelin's recommendations


A county town, Roscommon is also an important market centre situated in a thriving cattle and sheep region. Its name -Coman's wood (Gaelic) - refers to Saint Coman, who was Abbot of Clonmacnoise and first Bishop of Roscommon, where he founded a friary for Augustinian friars. Traces of the friary have been incorporated into the town's Anglican Church . The history of the friary, the town and the region is recorded at the Roscommon County Museum.
