Teach an Phiarsaigh (Pearse's Cottage)

Pearse's Cottage (Teach an Phiarsaigh) is a small restored cottage overlooking the breathtaking lakes and mountains of Connemara, County Galway. The cottage was used by Patrick Pearse (1879-1916), leader of the 1916 Rising, as a summer residence and summer school for his pupils from St Enda's in Dublin.

Accompanying Pearse on a visit to Ros Muc in 1915 was Desmond Ryan, a former pupil, who later wrote of the enthusiasm engendered by Pearse on his visits there: "The Twelve Pins came in sight and Pearse waved his hand here and there over the land, naming lake, mountain and district away to the Joyce Country under its purple mist".

Ryan also recalled the long walks and cycle rides through the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht and the stories told by Pearse that had been recounted to him by local storytellers.

The interior, although burned during the War of Independence, has been reconstructed and contains an exhibition.
