We found this museum very interesting, particularly how it covered Ireland's history in the early 20th century. We definitely came away with a better understanding of Ireland's past.

This museum is a gem. Not real big, in fact it is small. However, it has some well done exhibits with tons of information. You can do it in about 2 hours.

Small quaint museum. The price of admission is very reasonable at 5 euros per person. It was a rainy day and a great way to spend 2 hours. We spent most time with the temporary exhibition of the 1916 revolution and Casement which was fascinating....More
