Scene of a famous shoot out during the 1798 Rebellion. It was here that the famed rebel Michael Dwyer fought off the surrounding British troops and made good his escape over the snow covered mountains.
The cottage is traditional thatched, built with stone from the locality and whitewashed inside and out. Following a fire the cottage lay in ruins for almost 150 years but was later restored to it’s original form.
