It was very interesting to see how people lived in the 1500's. The 3 houses were very well restored. The gardens were great.

Came across this on a walk through the main street, what a treat. It also contains a lovely gift shop where you can buy keepsakes at very good prices, not ripped off like others!

Rothe house is the only Merchant House left in Ireland and England on it's original plot. It is unique in history and full of exceptional items.

Rothe House was interesting, not amazing. The gardens are nice and worth a quick visit. There are multiple exhibits, none too detailed but still interesting. This would not be my No.1 spot to visit.
