This is a fantastic tribute to Cusack and the G.A.A. It's small but it is packed full of great information.

The staff in the centre are absolutely fantastic; so welcoming and friendly. There is plentiful free parking on site and there's also a little gift shop on site.

The main centre has visual presentations and visitors can take as long as they want to take in all of the well laid-out information. There's alot of seating available in the centre.

You can then wander down the short pathway to the Cusacks' homestead; the family's original thatched cottage which has been converted to a museum-of-sorts where you can see 3x interesting and easy-to-watch holographic videos from the main man himself and take in the 19th century-style furnishings.

A fun challenge for kids (and big kids!) is to find their own county in the 32 county-trees which are scattered around the grounds.

There is plenty of seating outside the cottage and on yhe rest of the grounds. The pathway from the centre to the cottage is on a slight hill but it's very manageable and not too steep.

This really is a great place to visit for all G.A.A. fans. For other visitors who are less familiar with Gaelic Games, it makes a nice starting-off point to learn a little more about our national sports.

Prices as of today are: Adults €6, Children €3. Discounts available for families, students and O.A.P.s. It's advisable to bring cash if possible as I understand they have trouble with their card machine every now and then.

It may look a little bit too remote and out of the way to be bothered with but I promise you will not be disappointed.

I wouldn’t be the biggest GAA fan in the world so I was a bit apprehensive when a friend suggesting we visit the centre. However, I had no need to be. The centre is well run, had very interesting and informative information, not just about the history of the GAA, but Irish history in general. The cottage is pretty from the outside and in a beautiful setting (wish it had been a sunny day when we visited). The audio visual display in the cottage is excellent – really well done.

I would recommend a visit to the Centre if you are in the Burren area and especially if you are a fan of the GAA.

We stopped here after seeing other TripAdvisor reviews. Being English we knew almost nothing about the GAA and Gaelic games in general and so we were unsure what to expect.

The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable and gave an informative talk about Michael Cusack's life and the wider cultural history of his time. The cottage is well presented and gives an insight into rural life in 19th Century Ireland. Having started feeling unsure about this attraction we came away feeling it was one of the highlights of our trip.

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.
