Keadue, the 1993 National Award Winner in Bord Failte Tidy Towns Competition, is situated on the Arigna Mountains scenic drive. The area around has fine lakes and the village itself has traditional houses, stone walls and colourful gardens and window boxes. The last of the Irish bards, Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738), is buried in the McDermott Roe vault in the Abbey in Kilronan Cemetery, 2 kilometres outside the village. There is a Memorial Park to his music and musicianship in the centre of Keadue.
