As I’m interested in Standing Stones, I really really loved walking in this charming museum where Irish is the main language . Many Irish books for sake in the cafe. Loads of interesting artifacts . Wish I had stopped in the cafe for tea!

Brilliant museum with cafe. Its so full of history, so easy to read and enjoy. The kids loved it also. Could do with some background music perhaps? Blink and you'd miss it though driving through the town! I would recommend you stop and enjoy iy.

So much to take in but so very interesting. Love the information on the train that once took people and animals to other towns!

This little place seemed closed at first but it was just really quiet. It offers some interesting displays about the history of the area but not necessary to spend too much time here.
