  • Not a large workhouse but great story about Hannah and what went on there at the time of the potato famine. Nice tea room attached, although we did not use it. 5euros to use the head set to go around ...  more »
  • Includes a cafe, a souvenir shop and an educational exhibition. There´s an audio guide available for the exhibition in different languages. The staff is very friendly. Great, cosy atmosphere. Free Wifi provided in the cafe with a computer and printer for visitor use in the centre hall. Not as crowded as other cafes at the Square. Definitively worth stopping by!
  • Small exhibition that is good as far as it goes. I thought that they could have presented more on the actual conditions in the workhouse.
  • It's good lesson for history.....but they need to have some real things....
  • Not as interesting as hoped for. Still, given the short walk from the village, worth a visit. A playground in onsite too, which was popular with the kids.
  • Very interesting tour of the old workhouse and nice little gift shop.
