  • For €5 this is a brilliant museum about the history of butter making, including weird rituals they would do for good luck like put a dead child's hand under the churn, all the way to the present day how it exports to over 80 countries - we've all put a bit of Kerry Gold spread on our toast when staying at a B&B! The history of the roads, and the development of Cork harbour for ships sailing across the Atlantic taking supplies of butter (biggest in the world), salted meats, sailcloth (biggest in Europe), and gunpowder (biggest in Ireland).
  • The Butter Museum brings to life the original Celtic Tiger story of Ireland's world leading export - butter. Original exhibits including the tools of the trade and testimony footage from the industry and the families who used the traditional churning method are faithfully captured at this hidden delight of Cork.
  • Very informative. Easy to find great location. Great display. Now myself and my daughter know why Irish butter and dairy products are special.
  • I really enjoy places like this. Fascinating, a bit quirky and very focused. I only wish the butter-making demonstrations were still happening
  • Two floors small museum about butter, all you need to know is here from how the butter being made to the history of Irish butter, you might need 45-60 minutes for the whole journey, that includes a 16 minutes video. Very interesting place to visit but a bit too small.
