Explore King House

Meet the founding members of the King family, enjoy the grandeur of their Georgian home and discover how the house was adapted to become headquarters to the Connaught Rangers.

Our exhibitions tell the story of Gaelic Ireland before the King family arrived in Boyle and and go on to explore the role that King House and Boyle played during the struggle for Irish independence.

King House is proud to house the McAleese Collection and the Boyle Civic Art Collection. A lovely exhibition is also dedicated to Boyle’s own star of the silver screen, Maureen O’Sullivan.
