A senior tourism executive admits that improved access to the new National Famine Museum in Strokestown will be vital to the project’s success.

This week the government confirmed funding of almost four-million euro to develop the museum at Strokestown Park House.
It’s hoped the modern museum, which will be located within the current structure, will help bring an additional fifty-thousand visitors to Roscommon every year when it opens in 2021.

The project will form a key part of future Hidden Heartlands promotions by Fáilte Ireland, and Orla Carroll, who is Product Development Manager with the tourism body, admits that improvements to the N4 and N5 will be crucial to the museum’s success in attracting visitors.
