The museum is located in a jewelry store. It's nice to see the history of Claddagh ring. There many old RINGS,photos, newspapers articles... It's a small, but interesting museum. It's not a must do stop, but you won't regret to stop there.

This tiny room in the back of the jewelry shop is packed full of amazing old photos and the history of the Claddagh. Free to pop in and see. Check it out if you are in the area. Even just for the pictures.
