  • A bit rubbish. And yet a whiff of Cork's wonderful heritage. Friendly staff.
  • Surprisingly good museum, not huge but a good look at Irelands dairy history.
  • I'm giving this place a 5 star rating as I really enjoyed my visit here. What made the visit for me was the fact that we organised to visit the museum when the butter was being made. This was brilliant, the man that was making the butter Don, he welcomed everybody in and got us all involved in the experience. He then gave us some home made soda bread and we sampled the butter on it. He even wrapped some butter up for anyone that wanted to take a little home. 5 stars for Don!!
  • Very interesting to learn about the historic importance of butter in Ireland. Seeing butter being hand made was also great fun.
  • More than you (n)ever wanted to know about Irish butter. A quaint small museum with films and butter production contraptions, informative and unique. Entrance fee is nominal and attendants are super friendly. About 15 min walk from English Market in central area, up a modest hill.
