Cycle from Bikes & Boards HQ to National Museum of Ireland – Country Life
Explore four floors of award-winning exhibition galleries, a historic country house and formal gardens at the National Museum of Ireland – Country Life, Turlough Park, Castlebar.
Set in the spectacular grounds of Turlough Park House, the museum is located approximately 8km from Castlebar and is the only branch of National Museum of Ireland situated outside Dublin.
The museum is home to Ireland’s National Folklife Collection and charts the day-to-day lives of our rural ancestors from the 1850s to the 1950s. The exhibitions explore topics such as traditional crafts and skills, life in the home, farming and fishing, life in the community and festivals and customs.
Visitors can see how ordinary people lived in Ireland, during an extraordinary century of change, rebellion, revolution and revival.
