Really interesting historical centre. Well worth the visit. If you also intend visiting the castle purchase both tickets together, better value.

A genuinely engaging visit to the 1798 centre. Its format brings the history alive and speaking characters help to keep the interest up (did Thomas Paine really have an Irish accent?!).

For 4 euros (senior price 👍🏻), this small unassuming and surprising museum is very informative with creative displays, holographic characters & great use of space. Spend 30-45 minutes- learn something. There is a small snack area as well as toilets and plenty parking.

This is a really good museum, very informative and good value for money. My only criticism that some of the text was hard to read because of the colours blending with the background colours.
