This is a beautiful museum, a very fitting tribute to Lady Gregory set in the old school House The classroom setting has been lovingly recreated with wooden desks, blackboard and a plethora of books and memorabilia. The wall is plastered with maps and photos and curios.
Parking is limited enough and the museum is just off the main road to Gort.

a really beautiful museum in the old Kiltartan school dedicated to the Gregory family of the nearby Coole Park. it contains a treasure trove of artifacts from the family and some of the figures of the Irish literary revival. also included in the exibit is a reproduction of the original schoolroom in the school. It is also a most beautiful building and is looked after really well. There were also books on the history of the area for sale there.

A treasure trove to complement the Coole Park experience. Míle buíochas to Anthony Coppinger for a memorable visit. Well done to all the volunteers responsible for this jewel.

Nice museum, Rena was very knowledgeable of the museum and Lady Gregory and family. My favourite bit was the school room in the back of the museum as I am a big fan of social history.

More of literary museum than museum with artificats but it was nice talking to Rena about the knowlegde she had of the museum.

This museum was a hidden gem well worth a visit. Not to be missed on the Gregory trail. Phone ahead.

Popped into this lovely museum for a visit on Saturday last and would recommend it highly - not least because of the wonderful guide who was in charge that day. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic as he showed us around, we were utterly charmed!! Whatever he's being paid - double it!!

When I think of our trip west, this museum and Portumna Workhouse will be the two places I will remember most fondly. The manager at the Portumna centre told me I had to visit given my love for all things creative (Yeats, Gregory,. Shaw etc.). It is a gem of a museum with little treasures everywhere. Recommended.

I was disappointed when I sighted the notice advising that the museum was only open from June to September. Took a few photos of the exterior and site and was leaving when I heard someone calling to me. It was my lucky day, the curator (?), a lady, was visiting nearby and had seen me. Shortly afterwards I was enjoying the exhibits inside the former schoolrooms built in 1892. I enjoyed the Irish classroom, memories of younger days, the costumes, original theatre programmes and various other memorabilia, all with enthusiastic explanation from the lady.

The museum is super cute, it is small but has lots of great treasures! I highly recommend it (coupled with visiting Coole park, that was owned by the Gregory family). The gentleman looking after was knowledgeable, super friendly, passionate about the historical and literary content. Both me and my son loved it.
