Rossmore Forest Park is located 3.5km south west of Monaghan town.

Site Description

The lands which comprise Rossmore Forest Park was formerly part of the barony of Rossmore. A castle was constructed in 1827 with various extensions being added over the years. The remains of the castle can still be seen in the park. As with many estates of the time, Rossmore fell into decline during the mid 20th century and  the estate was subsequently divided among the local farmers with the Irish Forestry Division acquiring the forested areas. Rossmore Castle was demolished in 1974.
