We are delighted that next Wednesday 1st July we are re-opening our Walled Gardens & National Famine Museum. We also have a takeaway service from our Café. We will be open from Wednesday to Sunday from 11.00am to 4.00pm. The House will remain closed for the moment. Please stay safe and follow all Government guidelines regarding social distancing.
While you are visiting the National Famine Museum you can take a look at the new and fascinating exhibition “Forgotten Polish Hero of the Great Irish Famine: Paul Strzelecki’s Struggle to Save Thousands”. This exhibition by the Polish Embassy in Dublin explores the fascinating life and achievements of Count Paul (Paweł) Strzelecki, one of the great humanitarians of the 19th century, whose contributions to Irish Famine relief have yet to be widely known and commemorated. The exhibition is in English and entrance is included in the entrance fee to the National Famine Museum. Read more here.
