Hill of Uisneach – The space between the old and the new.

  • By Cooney Architects


The Hill of Uisneach or Ushnagh is an ancient ceremonial site in the barony of Rathconrath in County Westmeath, Ireland. In Irish mythology it is the centre of Ireland and is associated with the festival of Bealtaine.

The new visitors centre at the Hill of Uisneach opened its doors at the very end of July.  The new centre, constructed in corten steel, contrasts against the old rendered cottage building.  The amphitheater and public space between, joins the two contrasting structures together, creating a homogeneous whole.
