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.

Staff gave us a wonderful welcome & an excellent talk on townland names & their meaning. Irish place names really connect with the landscape giving a poetic beauty to the countryside.

I would recommend a visit here especially to one of their many great events! It is a very charming venue with so much on offer. A brilliant place for little people too. Ann and Annette are simply lovely and wonderful ambassadors for art and the arts in Longford.

I met Annette and Ann through the Home Education Network, and what a fantastic place the heritage centre is! It's a truly lovely venue, with beautiful grounds and a lovely Victorian era building like something from a fairy tale. I've attended several workshops there and have come away enriched, it's an absolute gem, well done Annette and Ann

Ardagh Heritage & Creativity Centre is one of a kind..have had many many visits but no two have been the same...perfect for children..perfect for adults..Full of history..creations for the future..be yourself there...be someone else there..endless possibilities. ..clime into the time travel tree and transport back to prehistoric times to hunt for dinosaurs in the woods..Make a volcano and watch the lava explode..watch out for fairy doors and fairies on the fairy trail..use any or all of the art media to create..or just have a coffee and browse through the craft shop..and did I mention the exhibitions? ??

Great place to visit - really magic place immersed in creativity and the world of Faerie. Kids really love it - they get great freedom and to use their imaginations & to create. The two ladies who run it have such a great way with kids! There is plenty for adults too with the heritage centre but Ann and Annette who run the centre a mine of local history/knowledge. Definitely worth a visit!!!
