There were so many beautiful things to see on display. The museum invites you to open drawers and find the treasures hidden within. From textiles to fine jewels, armor to cutlery, everything a collector could imagine is here. We even purchased some jewelry in the gift shop before we left.

We went there hoping to see a traveling exhibit of prison art, but it had closed the day before.

This is a lovely venue for adults & kids alike. We have 6 years old twin girls & a baby. It's nice to pop into the cafe on a Saturday afternoon for a relaxing coffee & home produced cakes, sanwiches or salads. The cafe overlooks the River Shannon is cosy but spacious. On certain days there is free kids art... More
