I enjoyed my visit to the Hunt Museum. While their normal exhibits are interesting and cover a wide area of material they also hold free exhibitions in the basement which are well worth a visit.

There is something for everyone in the Hunt Museum. Historic items, artistic items, fashion items, all laid out in an interesting setting with knowledgeable assistance available. An exhibition space downstairs holds a wide variety of art or history exhibitions and a lovely restaurant overlooks the Shannon

We visited this Museum for something to do before our flight from Shannon Airport. What a brilliant idea it turned out to be. We arrived just as the Museum opened and we're lucky enough to be assigned Jack Little as our guide. He was superb! So informative with a lovely manner of explaining things. You never felt he was lecturing... More
