Historic Callan is one of Kilkenny's largest towns and was founded by William the Marshall in 1207. Callan has a good choice of traditional pubs, shops including supermarket and restaurants as well as good road and bus links to other main towns and cities. Medieval Kilkenny city is a mere 10-15 minute drive away. In 2005 Neil Jordan's film 'Breakfast in Pluto' starring Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy was filmed here and in 2007 Callan celebrated its 800th year! There are many places of interest in the immediate vicinity including The Moat just off Bridge street, one of Ireland's best preserved Motte-and-baileys, The Workhouse in Prologue, Callan and Callan Augustinian Priory, to name but a few. Callan is the birthplace of some famous people including Edmund Rice founder of Christian Brothers (whose childhood home is still in place), poet in exile John Locke (1847), James Hoban (who designed the White House), Irish painter Tony O'Malley.
