This is a private collection of over 6000 antique, historical and novel items ranging from pre-famine Ireland. There is an impressive array of farm yard equipment, a collection of horse drawn agricultural machinery, and a thrasher.
A street scene has a number of reconstructed shops and a pub; all stocked, jam-packed with an assortment of products and equipped as they would have existed in the past.
The tools and equipment on display show the skill and ingenuity of the designers and builders of early industrial and farming equipment.
A varied collection of household items such as butter making equipment, lamps, furniture, utensils and papers are on display, along with a range of coins, ledgers, registers, posters, newspapers and other memorabilia from the past.
Any member of the family will be happy to give you a personal tour of the museum.
