About

Visit the childhood home of the much-loved Victorian novelist William Carleton, well versed in Irish folklore and described by Yeats as ‘the greatest novelist of Ireland’.

An annual literary festival held in August in the Clogher Valley celebrates Carleton’s work. Why not take a driving/walking tour along the scenic Carleton Trail, sign posted throughout the Clogher Valley, with many interesting heritage sites along the way. Carleton’s Cottage also features on the Carleton Trail.
