A brilliant place to visit. I had just got off the bus to Bantry from Cork, it was tipping down with rain, I saw this place and thought I'd shelter from the rain for a bit. There are amazing items in here, old pictures, old Irons, old items of clothing that the women wore, load of things from days gone... More

What a beautiful place to visit! Jim the man working there was so nice and went out of his way to help us when we found a picture of my grandmother when she was a child. A must see for people with a family connection with Bantry!

Couldn't believe the museum was closed on a bank holiday weekend when there were a lot of people about. Visited as part of a genealogy holiday and hoped for some information to help. Luckily the local shopkeepers and bookstore were helpful and informative.

Strange little museum, hidden away behind the fire station. Two small rooms with a wierd and wonderful collection of memorabilia. A wonderful demonstration in itself of a special Irish approach to things. Loved it!
