  • Actually learned quiet a bit and got a better appreciation for the Kerry Gold Irish butter we eat here at home. Its in one of the older parts of town so the walk was worth it just to see the city.  more »

  • 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!
