Strokestown Travel guide
Strokestown : Michelin's recommendations
Strokestown is a fine example of an estate village. The broad main street, supposedly modelled on Vienna's Ringstrasse, was laid out in the early 19C to complement the new Georgian Gothic entrance to the castle. In the grounds to the east, the ruins of a church (1236) mark the site of the earlier village.
