Glasson

Glasson takes its name from the Irish word Glasan - a streamlet, and is known as the "Village of the Roses". A Victorian writer Mary Bannim wrote: "The houses are of picturesque build, and some are kept in the old style - smothered in roses and fuchsias; upon all are trained vines and climbing plants" This is still true today and it is a pretty picturesque place famous for its hospitality and features two olde world pubs and two first class restaurants. The old Glasson Schoolhouse dates from 1844. Itis a Tudor style, single storey schoolhouse with a characteristic "Tudor" arched doorway and hood mouldings on the windows. It is being restored and renovated as an interpretative centre.
