“An interesting day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2017

This is one of my favourite places in County Limerick. Beautiful place for a walk or picnic. The Heritage Centre is beautifully built in the style of a Stone Age building but with state of the art technology used to bring the area's history to life. Excellent staff. A must see.
