  • We popped by on a llittle walk to see what was around and the chap with the keys said they weren't open yet but he couldn't have us ladies out in the cold. We paid the £4 entrance fee and settled down...  more »
  • We went walking expressly to see him at the time and date on which said that was open, but we find the Museum closed, we asked a man and told us that they were cleaning it and that they would not open, we told him than would the next day and told us to best volviesemos in August. They announce something that is us. Outrageous!

  • The Museum is absolutely boring, insipid, small, can enjoy is that only children or lovers of the history of medieval Europe.

  • Relics of old dacency. Fascinating economic and social history of Cork. If you are lucky you may even get to hear the Butter band Brass ensemble rehearsing or even better performing. An amazing and soulful location in the heart of Shandon. They say the nearby Maldon Hotel (formerly the North Infirmary) is Haunted. I stayed there a couple of years ago but never saw a ghost.
  • Better than expected, very informative. It sounds cheesy, but it's as smooth as butter. Good way to spend 90 minutes on a rainy afternoon.
  • From the outside I wondered "why is there a butter museum in Cork?", but delighted I went in, very interesting history and totally worth the price
  • This place provided very detail of the history of Ireland butter and the process of butter making. A great place to learn.
  • It was all that I'd hoped it would be! Buttery!
