  • Visited the Centre in mid-July, was a bit out of the way and hard to access, especially for foreigners. Very cool collection of militaria and Michael Collins related artifacts. The man giving the presentation was truly brilliant and masterful on his talk about Michael Collins. My family was tired and bored from traveling, however I found it extremely interesting. The book “In Search of Michael Collins” is an outstanding resource for information on Michael Collins and I have read it many times since my visit. 10/10
  • Really enjoyed this. Lots of local history with an excellent guide. A wealth of knowledge! Well worth a visit.
  • Wow how amazing! Very informative and the Crowley man was a world of knowledge! Would highly recommend 10 out of 10!!
  • Fascinating museum with wall-to-wall artifacts from Collins's life and more. The owner/Collins historian gives an absorbing lecture of Collins' life and role in Irish history. The breakdown of the shootout that felled Collins is meticulously detailed and highly interesting. Anyone with an even mild interest in history will enjoy this museum. Additionally, the owner and his son are genuinely helpful people. We had a flat tire (and flat spare tire) outside their museum. Even though it was past closing time, they phoned a local mechanic and waited with us until he returned. Cannot thank those guys enough!
  • This was a very worthwhile stop in clonakilty. The exhibits were very informative and the tour guide extremely informative and seemed to have a very deep knowledge of all of the aspects of michael Collins including why he was called the big man and the theories around his assassination. A must for anyone interested in Irish history.
