  • Visited this museum 2 days ago with 2 adults and 5 kids between 6 and 15. Joe Whelan, the owner and local businessman, met us at the door and stood by our sides and passionately explained to us what he has collected from rural Ireland since ca 1850. This museum has left a lasting impression on me and I would love to return to have time to read some of his highly interesting documents kept from the past. My children liked the old school bench and looking into old textbooks. Well done Joe. This is a credit to your hard work! This museum is free of charge but you can leave a donation if you like.
  • Great discovery. Joe Whelan spent part of the afternoon explaining a thousand things.. It is free but you can leave a donation if you want. Highly recommended.
