a nice drive around the peninsula and a rather unique experience. Something different to jump inside for an hour or so. It has artifacts from around the world as well as Ireland. Not a destination but worth the stop if passing by !

What a great surprise to experience this museum. Exhibits for educational and even exciting. Skeleton and description of a huge cave bear has been shared to the delight of our grandchildren. Impressive.

A small, but well organized display of Celtic and pre-Celtic artifacts. The individual items were carefully mounted, and explained in some detail. A stop worthy of attention.

We went in here because someone had posted that it was worth the entry fee just to see the mammoth. The mammoth skull and horns were amazing, and the bear skeleton. And there was a fossil of some dinosaur eggs. I don't think many exhibits (if any) come from Ireland, but it's interesting nonetheless.
