This is on the edge of town and well-preserved compared to others in Ireland which are derelict or gone forever. Ask around to have a look. Do some research in advance about workhouses to get a full feel for their role in Irish history.

I visited The Workhouse after a search at Rothe House in Callan, I found that my mother was born in there in 1902,and sent out on the street with my Grandmother as she didn,t have any money.
