“Nenagh Heritage Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Same across this by accident. Didn't look like it was open - needs to be better advertised! My daughter didn't want to go in as she thought we were trespassing! But once we got in we were very happily surprised - it was a very interesting exhibition. Creative. The person in charge was very welcoming.

Brought my son to visit and we spend a great morning learning about our community and locality. A nice way to pass a rainy morning.

“Very interesting Museum with free admission”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is a nice Museum located in the former County Gaol for North Tipperary. The Museum has re-created life in old Rural Ireland and you can visit the condemned cells and the execution area and the small exercise yard. There is also an art gallery with some nice paintings by local artists. It is free to visit which is great and the staff are friendly and helpful.

“Interesting collection of local history - but missing War of Independence era”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

This is a very non-political museum.

Located in the grounds of the old prision (and subsequently a school run by the Sisters of Mercy), it still has the gatehouse preserved and one can still see the tiny exercise yard adjoining it (our Polish host told us that prisoners had to walk around it 63 times to clock one mile).

The warden's house forms the main attraction and contains cultural artifacts relating to farming, retail and other local interests, but no mention of the War of Independence nor the Irish Civil War. (And testimony to how active Tipperary was in this period is shown by the rollcall on the monument located nearby.)

This latter aspect was disappointing ... but nevertheless an interesting 40 minutes were spent here.
