We are delighted that from 1st July we re-opened our Walled Gardens & National Famine Museum and we have started tours of the House once again. We are open daily from 11:00 to 4:00pm and have started daily tours of the house at 12:00 and 2:00pm. Spaces are limited to 15 on each tour and we ask that everyone wears masks on the tour of the house. We have a first-come, first-served policy. We encourage you to call between 11:00am and 4:00pm and book a place on the tour time and day of your choice. The Famine Museum and Gardens are self-guided and do not require any booking.
