    Oh my! If you want to immerse yourself in Irish countryside culture this little museum is a MUST SEE! Charlie Finneran is simply priceless and his collection is as well. Totally worth the admission (€8)

    Very knowledgeable guide who gave loads of information about local walks etc.
    Test you strength and lift a sword. Lots of games for the younger ones and interactive information.

    I was delighted to have time to pop in after visiting the castle opposite.
    A lovely church, grand architecture and peaceful inside. Lovely crib scene and Christmas trees.

    The gallery is located on the river and the light pouring in through the glass lined corridor is stunning in itself.

    The gallery features different local artists and is well worth a visit. Some beautiful thought provoking pieces on display.

    Their is currently no admission charge.

    Lovely quiet place just outside Athlone. Excellent centre with lots of interesting exhibits but you'd need lots of time to read all the articles. The 12th century abbey and St.Brigid's Well are right beside the centre. But the other places of interest are a few miles away - the Wake House, The Dolmen and the Hedge School. Good parking on tarmac outside (always good to have tarmac rather than gravel, especially for motorcycles). Very friendly local volunteers - Anton and Sean - showed us around and gave us a lot of information about their fantastic work to preserve the local heritage.
