    Man on the desk was very helpful but very little to see here. Poor lighting. Very uninspiring.

    I got very lucky when I went there. It was an exhibition of World War I and how the irish were involved. Very well curated, many photographs of Irish soldiers and their days on the trench. There is also helmets, weaponry, and of course, great information about the war and items on display. I enjoyed to see the roles of women on the war, the used nurse apron with blood stains was impressive. There is also a memorial of all Irish who gave their lives at the war. A great history lesson about the Irish and WW1.
