    This exhibition is very dated and cold. There isn't much information if you are just walking around. It is worth a look if you are playing tourist for a day but if you were to miss it on your trip to ...  more »

    Okay, who would ever think about going to a Butter Museum. We had visited the nearby Shandon Bell Tower and saw this museum. Upon entering we met a very helpful guide who started a video about the his...  more »

    NO SAMPLES. Don't get fooled by the great-looking website. This is not like the other cool places in Ireland like the Guinness Storehouse or Jameson distillery where you have several opportunities to taste the product. It is 2 levels of older butter making tools and information about butter over the centuries. The info itself is very interesting! But, after hearing about butter for 45 minutes you want at least a little soda bread with some Kerrygold... Still go to Cork, just don't go out of your way to get here (like I mistakenly did). Really cool tools and info though.

    It sounds quirky and doesn't look like much from the outside but this little museum is a rare hidden gem. Very well organized, short and lovely visit. The movie at the beginning explaining how the dairy industry boomed in the 80s is priceless! Highly recommended

    Simple museum for those who really love butter. It is not very kid friendly. Little more activities for kids need to be added.

    Informative and interesting to learn the history of butter but there is no live butter making demonstration. Worth a visit if in city.

    Quirky and surprising little museum. About everything you will ever need to know about butter.

Where to stay in Cork

A destination in and of itself, Cork City has a dense center with plenty of hotels and hostels. Head north of the city center for affordable options like mid-range hotels and guesthouses. From here, you can walk or bike to all of the sights in the heart of the city. If everything is booked, or if you've simply come to explore the city's surrounding nature, check out the campgrounds about ten minutes from the center of town by car. There are also a number of charming bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, and other pensions in the outskirts, which can be a good option if you're using the city as a base for exploring the sights of Cork County.
