Overview of Company
Rathcroghan Visitor Centre is a non-profit community social enterprise, located in the medieval village of Tulsk, Co. Roscommon. We are the interpretive experience, community café, gift shop and heritage custodians for the internationally-significant archaeological landscape of Rathcroghan, known in our medieval literature as CruachanAí.
We opened our doors for the first time on the auspicious date of 31st October 1999, the time of the festival of Samhain, modern-day Halloween Night, a most important day for us here in Co. Roscommon. Since that day, we have always strived to bring the highest standards of heritage tourism to our valued visitors.
The centre was established, and continues to be operated by a voluntary board of directors, Tulsk Action Group CLG, and our purpose is to promote our brand of heritage tourism for the social, economic and employment benefit of the communities in Tulsk and Rathcroghan.
