Really interesting and informative volunteer run museum about Irish Independence through local eyes. Lovely couple of volunteers were there to help us. Toilets available. It’s also very close to the monument where Michael Collins was assassinated, so it’s well worth a little detour.

A little gem of a museum set in a pretty village set high in the hills with scenic views over the rolling Cork countryside. The museum itself is a fascinating collection of items telling the story of the period encompassing the Rising and the Civil War as it related to the East Cork area.

A lovely little museum in Kilmurray, Co. Cork. Very up to date wall charts with lots of information about Irelands struggle for Independence. Downstairs features many original artefacts from Irelands history with plenty of detailed information and photos. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

We visited as part of a staff field trip/day out yesteday, and having been there before i was confident my history minded colleagues would also enjoy it...they sure did!
Although we were running (badly!) behind schedule, Noel waited patiently for us and following a brief on the origins, development and outline of the museum, brought us into the exhibition area to ramble around and browse the many artefacts and items on display.
At the core of the museum is the areas involvement in the revolutionary period but also covered are the regions political, archaeological and social history aspects.
All are presented in a modern, well presented fashion and kept us enthralled for the duration of our visit. Situated just a short distance off the Cork to Killarney road before Macroom, and North of Beal na Blath, if your of a mind to stop by and take in all of the above, you will be happy you did.
Thanks again to Noel, and best wishes to the community, staff and locals who deserve every success .

Run and administered by local volunteers, this is a special place packed with an amazing collection of artifacts, photos, documents and priceless memorabilia.

We literally stumbled onto it while passing through the village of Kilmurry on our way to Beal na Blath as, having noticed a sign advertising the museum, we decided stop and 'check it out'.

I suspect that this exhibition is as much a tribute to the locals/people who lived through that that period in Irish history as it is a museum and if so, then it is a wonderful tribute.

The staff/volunteers were very informative, knowledgeable and enthusiastic and we could have spent the entire day just listening them.

For those with an interest in Irish History, and particularly in the Irish War of Independence, this is a must visit exhibition which is on a par with any in the Country.

Most informative local history museum with many artefacts from bygone days. Highly motivated and informative guides with deep knowledge of their subject. Especially strong on the War of Independence in the local area. Well worth a visit and well signposted from main road. (just a mile up to Kilmurray village)

After leaving Kilmichael Ambush Site, we decided to keep going and travel to the Independence Museum, as I discovered that the museum would be open on Bank Holiday Monday.
I was greeted by Siobhán, a volunteer to the museum and she gave me a booklet with a lot of information and showed me downstairs to the main museum and the order of museum. It was self-guided and I had time to view and look at each item in my own time.
It was lovely to read and see so much information about the Civil War in this locality. The space was small, but there was so much information crammed into this space.
This place is a must for those who are interested in Irish history and it was lovely to see other places of interest discussed within the museum.
The entrance fee was €5 for adults and it is well worth the price. I could have spent hours going through in detail all the items that they have to display. Would strongly recommend and would love to go back and see more items that I missed.
