The award-winning National Museum of Ireland – Country Life presents traditional life in Ireland throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Set in the beautiful grounds of Turlough Park, the Museum treats visitors to a taste of how our ancestors lived their daily lives, in good times and bad. This national collection is displayed over the four floors and includes original artefacts and displays, captivating archival video footage and interactive screens. Discover the lives of our very recent ancestors through agriculture, fishing and hunting, clothing and textiles, furniture and fittings, trades and crafts, transport, calendar customs, leisure and religion. A carefully selected programme of temporary exhibitions catches the public imagination. The Museum runs a constantly changing programme of workshops, events and festivals for adults, families and schools. This helps raise awareness of the Museum collection and the associated traditional crafts, customs and traditions. Round off your visit with a relaxing walk through the gardens followed by a tasty lunch in the café. Afterwards browse through our Museum Shop and get that special gift for your family at home.
