Esmee the previous owner, sadly no longer with us, would be so pleased with the restoration. Visited Esmee many times years ago and am in awe of how sensitive the changes are. Great staff, knowledgable and very friendly. Thank you.

A great wee museum with a guided tour if there are not too many around - a lot to take in in such a small place - a great view of the area from the upstairs - really worth a stop

Crossed the road from St Patricks cathedral to this little museum. The gentleman who greeted us was very pleasant, helpful and informative. Museum trail to keep children busy.

This has a very modest frontage and you go down a short entrance that opens up into a magic little museum. It was the old Registry and is a totally amazing little building. Totally unique. The collections include books, prints and coins that are part of the Armagh Public Library's collections. Any history lover, building lover and those who like... More

Set in a beautiful row of traditionally 'Armagh' houses, this homely museum really allows the option of learning. Stephen is truly a wonderful guide and never fails to reach out to an audience! I cannot stress how much this museum reaches out to every age range, with its interactive facilities or its reading options upon the walls. You can go... More

came upon this tea shop by accident. Very surprised with the quality of the food. Great atmosphere with a really quirky and interesting interior. Would go back again for the cakes as they were really enjoyable, especially the pear and almond/ raspberry tartlet. Seems to close at 4pm so check opening times.

Must visit location for anyone visiting Armagh. We visited St Pat's cathederal, N0.5 The Hill and the Library. Each was excellent in terms of the information provided, the spectacle and contents but above all - the warmth of the people who welcomed us and explained the significance and history of each of these locations. Everything is within 50 meters of... More
