  • Visited this museum today and liked it so much that I will visit again. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and I found the exhibits interesting and informative. I am a recent resident of the area and the museum helped to get my knowledge of history into context. An excellent day out and the tearoom is a must for excellent food,fabulous views and friendly service.
  • New gallery about Early Christian church is Downpatrick is stunning. Other exhibits are well displayed and very interesting. The cafe is well worth a visit for its views alone.
