Set in an old Capuchin friary which itself is worth the visit, the cork museum is a well set out exhibit of the industry. Also has a small shop.

Did not realise how important this region was for cork. At one stage there was no one to touch them for world production. The impact locally is all explained here and the entrance fee is well worth paying

Interesting museum and excellent English speaking guide. Very glad we stopped here for a tour. Only 4 euro per person including guide. They close between 13:00-15:00. We arrived at 12:30 and had a half hour tour.
