Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I liked the explanations and displays especially the peat butter,
the firkin ( bucket for butter), the film, the superstitions about churning butter, the butter routes....

Who doesn't love Irish butter? It's the best! In this museum you get a little history of Cork City-cattle raids, what??- and also the history of butter making. Well worth a walk up the hill and an hour or so.

We spent about 45 minutes here and thoroughly enjoyed it! We love Irish butter, and the film and museum helped us understand why. Stamping our own butter wrappers was fun.

It's pretty small, but informative. I loved watching the video to learn more about Kerrygold butter, which is a staple in my household.

Visited here whilst on the hop on hop off bus tour. The most interesting part was the video we watched at the start. The rest was very average and could have missed it out

We enjoyed browsing through this small museum on a side road in Cork. The exhibit contains churns, wrappers, and other equipment, as well as a history of the butter industry in Ireland. We found the video to be very interesting. It doesn't take very long to go through the museum but we enjoyed it. Children might be bored. We left the museum craving fresh bread with lots of butter!
