  • Wonderful tour through time. Really interesting experience and so welcoming! Highly recommend if you're in the area.
  • The tour begins with the host welcoming you to his family home, he will seat you and begin to recount the history of the house, farm and his family. Very personal, engaging and fascinating to hear. He will then take you on a tour of a much more modern and bigger facility where he has hundreds of unique historical artifacts. It all ends with some tea and scones. This is a quirky, unique opportunity to experience the history of Mayo first hand. Not to be missed if you're interested in something different that encourages some thinking and introspection. We loved it.
  • Have been back to this place numerous times ..Tom is a great storyteller and recounts the history of the house and sourounding area with passion...A brilliant collection of heritage pieces... Recommend 100%... But best to book ahead of your visit...
  • After visiting Mayo for many years we finally got around to visiting Hennigan's Heritage centre and it was fantastic! Tom is very welcoming and an excellent guide who really brings the stories to life. It was a fascinating insight into life in Mayo in years gone by and I will definitely be recommending a trip to Tom's to friends and family.
  • Very well done! We liked it a lot. Tom brought his story at a marvelous way. It is still in our head and heart. Many thanks!!
