“I'm lost in boredom”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Very friendly personnel. But the museum starts with a movie, which is hard to follow and not that entertaining and the rest of the museum shows some artifacts and easing signs, but they could have made it much more inter active. The exhibition in the second floor: what's the topic? I'm lost. Focus on the area around this museum: perfect to visit.

“Very informative small museum”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

We wouldn't have gone out of our way to visit the Butter Museum but since it is only 100 metres from the Shandon Bells and in a very old neighborhood of the city full of narrow, winding lanes, we decided it would be a pity not to visit. A small but highly informative museum with information on how butter has been produced in Ireland for centuries, how it was produced unecomically for most of that time and how Kerrygold butter has made Ireland's butter a world-leader since 1960. An eye-opener for us.

“Informative”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

It was very cute. We loved the old adverts from the 50's and 60's. The video seemed boring to begin with, but stick with it, the characters are lovely.

“Small and to quiet”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

It could be very interesting historical place. You can find lots of information about the Irish butter, but the place is a bit boring.

“Very interesting! ”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Decided to visit this museum. It is €4 to visit and I thought it was worth it. There was a number of visitors while I was visiting. The tour started with a video with the history of Kerrygold butter in 1960s and 1970s. The downstairs exhibit shows the history of butter and that it was a womans job to make the butter. Enjoyed the video of the lady who made the butter in Muckross House. The upstairs shows the history of Cork butter market and history of the bog butter. Would recommend. Spent about 1 - 1 1/2 hrs!
