magnificent Georgian mansion incorporating parts of a 16th century castle with a fascinating history and scheduled under the National Monuments Act. Castlecoote House is situated on the site of a medieval castle, thought to have been built between 1570 and 1616. It was a strategic site, and may have been the base of the Chieftains of Fuerty, the MacGeraghty clan. In 1616 it fell into the hands of Sir Charles Coote, who improved and refortified the castle. The castle was attacked three times by the confederate forces in the 1640’s. The Percy French Festival & Summer School is an annual event that takes place in the second week in July and is set in the wonderful historic Georgian building of Castlecoote House in his native county Roscommon. We have an exciting and diverse programme of lectures, recitals, poems, monologues, music, drama and paintings celebrating the life and times of the multi-talented William Percy French.
