Overview

Creative Ardagh in Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre has something for everyone. Explore, be inspired and create memories with us. Book your adult group for a historical tour with tea and scones or come along with your children for a fun, creative day together. Hands-on workshops in a range of arts and crafts are available for groups and individuals of all ages from toddlers to adults. Our heritage exhibition tells of 5000 years of local history from the ancient legend of Midir and Etain, the Iron Age King Maun through the Early Christian era when St Patrick left St Mel in charge to the Famine and Big House era and more recent Tidy Towns wins. Don't forget to browse in our craft shop which stocks many beautiful local creations. Outside we have gardens and a woods to explore and if you are lucky you may find a fairy or two hiding. School programmes, Summer Camps, Arty Parties and Drop-in art also available. Watch out for details of our special family events throughout the year.
