This is a suprise! I wouldn't have imagined seeing such detailed museum in the town with historical items from all of Ireland's ages.

Such a range of artefacts in this museum. The system is easy to follow and clearly signposted. Takes about 40 minutes to cover the range. Don't miss the beautiful Cross of Clogher. The museum is free.

I thought they'd be too young at 4 and 6 but they were enthused and loved it. The gentleman at the front desk was so nice and friendly towards them. Great free way to pass and hour.
