We recently visited the Agricultural Museum. The museum is housed in the yard stone buildings around a courtyard.
We were first greeted by a number of peacocks wandering around the courtyard!! Even though it was a wet day we were not hampered by weather since all exhibits are indoors. Staff were very helpful explaining the layout to us.
The museum is very easy to negotiate, all departments are clearly marked. There is a natural flow from the area housing large machinery, tractors, ploughs, Threshing mill to the smaller tools of dairying. The farm related trades are housed in a very authentic setting containing all the implements used at that time. The country farmhouse/ farm kitchens through the ages is so well done , from the crane over the open fire in the oldest to the benefits of rural electrification in the more modern kitchen.
The Famine Museum is definitely the best laid out most easily read account of those dreadful years in Irish history. A must for all primary/secondary history students . A nice coffee shop with stove!! Was a welcome last stop where we had coffee and pastries. lWe did a lovely walk around the lake after through the multi colored autumn woodlands .
There is an extensive building project going on to accommodate more exhibits. The Castle is also being restored to former glory.
Overall a very enjoyable day. Will definitely return when the works are complete

We visited here as we had come to see Celtic Woman that had an out door show here. So as the show was in the evening we decided to visit the gardens and museum in the day. What a stunning place and the museum was so interesting. Had our lunch at the tea room and the service and the food was great. Well worth a visit

My husband & I visited the castle & museum after seeing it in a tourism brochure. We spent 4 hours here! The castle was being restored but the museum was so well set out & the gardens were spectacular! I will recommend to all our Aussie friends.
