Having moved to Cavan 3 years ago we finally got around to visiting the museum. The building is very impressive & we were made to feel very welcome. The 3 floors the exhibits are set over were well laid out. Everything was very well explained & the information provided was very interesting. The WW1 trench has just opened on the... More

I love going to this place every time I'm in Ireland. They try to keep the local history similar but are always changing the main exhibition. I was leaving the weekend before they changed their exhibition to World War 1 but would have loved to have seen it. The building hasn't changed over the years and as a previous reviewer... More

Loved the building - fab Georgian building. Excellent exhibitions particularly liked the Clogh Ougther exhibition and the GAA exhibitions. There's a High Nelly exhibition on at the moment. The kids love the garden and play area and we enjoyed the coffee shop. Worth the visit.

We were just passing through the village and it was raining so decided to pop into the museum for a short visit. Two hours later we dragged ourselves away. A most enjoyable afternoon.

There is loads to see here and on different topics. I was particularly interested in the immigration areas, but there was also sport (football and camogie).

The Cavan County museum is bit off the beaten track. It's situated up a hill above the town centre in Ballyjamesduff, but it's well worth the effort to find it. It crams a lot into three floors of a former convent and has exhibits ranging from the iron age and the middle ages through the famine up to the history... More

This museum, although called Cavan County is in fact out of the way a little, 6 miles outside of Cavan Town, so bring a car. It is in a lovely old house and rather old fashioned but small is interesting here. I saw a very good exhibition on the Titanic and local people, some area are permanent but the changing... More

The County Cavan Museum is located in the town of Ballyjamesduff and not the County Town of Cavan. For that reason it is a bit off the beaten track; and if you are coming from the direction of Dublin you will need to hang a left in the town of Virginia. The town of Ballyjamesduff is fairly well sign-posted though... More

To my shame I am 35 years old, 8 miles from Ballyjamesduff and until recently I had never been in the Cavan County Museum. We were there for an event recently and it is much more than I ever expected on my own doorstep. Very interesting displays, surprisingly small entry fee and loads of events on. A lovely walk out...
