We almost didn't go in here as it doesn't look much from the outside. We were so glad we did. It was free to go in and that was a pleasant surprise. Downstairs they have a room set out with lots of displays of old local items, as if you are looking at a workshop. Upstairs they have lots of information about events in the local area. The volunteers are friendly and knowledgeable. A gentleman gave us lots of additional information about the displays and made sure we didn't miss out on parts he thought we would particularly want to see.

It was mentioned by our walking tour guide as a great place to see the RMS Lusitania exhibit. Meh.The exhibit was about 10' x 10'. They did have a deck chair and a mail sack from the ship.

This little museum provides some interesting insight to Kinsale history and it's connection to the sinking of the Lusitania. Glad we stopped in on this visit.

This place is well worth a visit. It is free but you can make a donation, which you should do. It is an interesting building to look at from the front. Inside is the story of the Lusitania supported with many photographs and some artefacts, all worth spending a little time reading and looking at.

This is a very short museum on Kinsale. We actually only learned about it due to taking Don and Barry's walking tour as the tour ends right outside the museum. One of the most interesting thing about the museum is the building itself. We learned more about that on the tour. It had just opened when our tour ended, so we decided to pop inside before heading out of town to Charles Fort. The museum is free and is run by volunteers. There was a volunteer at the entrance to give a little information about the museum and let us know they do accept donations and all money goes to its up keep as the building is historic. One thing that I found was that the Irish really enjoyed talking to tourist. We had a lovely chat with this volunteer about New England before proceeding into the building. The museum's main claim to fame is information about the Lusitania. They had some interesting articles from the wreck as well as letters and newspaper clippings. They also had information about Kinsale and the fort and how people in the town used to live. I would say we maybe spent 30 minutes here. It is really only a two room museum. I would say that if you have time to spot by, especially if you are interested in History.
