For Adults

It's your Museum, so have fun, learn and be inspired.


Overlooked by an ancient Round Tower, the Museum of Country Life has a magic all of its own! Take a walk around the lake through the ancient woodland to the restored Victorian gardens.

Then take a trip down memory lane…

Meander through the award winning exhibitions and journey back to Ireland of the 1950s and beyond.

Check out our Calendar of Events for talks, workshops, courses, performances and demonstrations. To book a group visit contact the Bookings Office.

Before you leave, why not ramble into Brambles Café for coffee and cake.
