We had not originally planned to visit the Museum but thanks to Rena McAllen (met her at Thoor Ballylee) we were able to experience this unique piece of Irish history. Like Thoor Ballylee, the museum was in the process of closing for the season. Rena graciously met us there and guided us through the extensive selection of artifacts at the... More

Sr de Lourdes Fahy is a national treasure and not just a county treasure. If you're lucky enough to have her as a guide when you visit then count your blessings. This is a must-see on a visit to south Galway especially for those with a love of Gregory or Yeats. Excellent.

Kiltartan Museum is housed in an old Primary School. It is on the N18 Galway - Limerick road. The Museum is well worth a visit as it houses many original photos and manuscripts. They majority of the material relates to W.B. Yeats and to Coole House and Lady Gregory. If you have an interest in Irish literature or Yeats this... More

The setting is wonderful, peaceful and picturesque and is a perfect place to include on a visit which would also take in Coole Park and Thoor Ballylee. Artefacts... More

A great little museum not far from Gort town. Only a few euro for admission you will love the informative displays and unusual artifacts. The guided tour is very interesting, you will learn a lot.
