We chanced on this place, having heard about it on RTE. Turlough House was the home of a famous Irish duellist with a colourful history! The museum itself is in a modern building with views over the turlough. Its exhibits focus on aspects of rural life over the years in Ireland with a particular emphasis on traditional crafts. In the 1930's someone had the foresight to have garments and other artefact made using the sort of skills that would inevitably die out and these are on view. The contrast between the idyll of rural life and the often harsh reality is well made.
