Came across by accident by driving through The Burren. Never been an avid GAA fan, but the info we've been given by our guides was very interesting. Loved Irish thatched cottage with red door. Very interactive and great fun.

A lovely little visit and a very quaint center. I loved the thatched roof, stone building and red door--it was pure Ireland. It was also graced with simple but lovely gardens. I found it to be a very worthwhile visit while traveling throughout County Clare.

The Michael Cusack Centre is quite small, however the visit was worthwhile. It was interesting to see the house and view the presentations.
