Four miles (6 km) north-west is Bruree, a small village on the River Maigue. This was a residence of Munster Kings in early times (the Irish name means royal residence). The ruined castle beside the Protestant church is said to have been a de Lacy fortress. A small museum is dedicated to the memory of Eamon de Valera, a former President who went to school here.
