Step back into old-fashioned country ways
Every feature tells a story
Rosehill House near Stewartstown is a portal to the past, somewhere in the early 1900’s. The entire dwelling is tastefully bedecked with original country furniture, old architectural features, authentic utensils and the everyday bric-a-brac from years gone by. Its crowning glory is, of course, the wonderful thatched roof.
Together, the house and its contents track the story of Irish country life from the 1840s through to more recent times. Even its walls, two feet thick, speak of a time when dwellings seemed to grow out of the very ground. A quick inhalation and you’ll detect the nostalgic aroma of the old oil lamps that are still called into service on special occasions.
Do, see, taste & try
A unique combination of its wonderful location, pristine period details and a warm, welcoming host make Rosehill House an exemplary place to immerse yourself in old Irish country ways and traditions. For some visitors, these experiences will provide a superb opportunity to relive distant memories from the past, while for others, they will open completely new insights to our rural heritage and a way of life now gone.
