More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Born in Carron in 1847, Michael Cusack founded the largest amateur sporting organisation in the world, the Gaelic Athletic Association. The Centre in Carron is dedicated to the memory of the man who is widely regarded as the saviour of Irish sports. The lovingly restored traditional thatched cottage reflects the character of 19th century Ireland. The dwelling appears today in its original state and is typical of famine cottages of the era. Even the courtyard and surrounding fields remain largely untouched. The contemporary display in our award winning visitor centre offers a unique perspective on Irish history, heritage and culture. Some interesting free attractions also in the area include the 6km Cusack Way walk (opened Oct 2013)from the Michael Cusack Centre to Cahercommaun Cliff Fort and Poulnabrone Dolmen. The centre caters for school tours, individuals and groups. Open April to 30th September, 7 days a week from 10 - 5pm,

Great spot for an avid Gaa fan!! Beautiful new and modern building for the visitor centre but totally in keeping with the area. Good knowledgable tour guide. Old house is retained and great to see audio visual used here! Very clean, tidy and well kept area. Loads of parking.

The beautiful landscape of Carron in the Burren is home to Michael Cusack, founder of the GAA so it's a must see for any GAA fans. Visitors can see culture and history in restored famine era thatched cottage. There are some activities and walking trails to Cahercommaugh Stone Fort and Cliff Fort. It's about 15-20 minutes from Ballyvaughn or Ennis.
