My boyfriend and I stumbled across Denis's treasure trove of antiquities during a visit to Lough Gur, and were lucky enough to receive a guided tour from Denis, the museum's creator. Don't be deceived by the low-key exterior of this museum - the inside is two-storeys high, with a reconstructed Irish classroom, a blacksmith's, an old Irish pub and vast... More

This is a really interesting place to spend a few hours and a great place to take visitors. My father in law loved it and Dennis was very welcoming, informative and even extended his hospitality by making tea for them, above what we expected. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the locality and you will get a proper real... More

We've just spent an amazing morning amongst fascinating memorabilia which lots of people of a certain age will really enjoy. Denis made everything come to life as he has a story for nearly every piece that you see. It's fascinating to see all the tools and equipment that were used by all the skilled craftsmen of years ago. You can... More

A lovingly-curated collection of everyday objects from many walks of life, and a personal tour from the Denis, the man himself. Well worth a trip, highly recommended.

Old Irish Ways is a special historical slice of Irish life. A new found friend Gem took us there. My husband and I had so much fun exploring his museum which is beautifully set out with items ranging from 100s' of years old to 20th century. A restored public bar with seating and school room are some of the things... More

Old Irish Ways Museum is one of those hidden treasures. The curator Dennis O Connor is an inspiration - he put the whole museum together and you can see the passion he has for his creation. The whole museum is full of the most interesting and fascinating pieces from the hundreds of years and if you are Irish you will... More

We had a great evening exploring all the momentous of times past, along with some great live music and cup of tea! If you want to delve into an Irish past you'll struggle to do better than this place, with the bar being a personal favourite! Lizzy & Rob (London)

We were told about Old Irish Ways after our visit to the Thomas Fitzgerald Centre. What an amazing museum. Denis welcomed us and gave an extensive guided tour of the hundreds of items he has collected, many of them dating back over 100 years. Here you can see an old cobblers shop, forge, classroom, pub which includes a shop and... More
