There is some old farming equipment and a few out buildings. Not very impressive and not worth the admission fee.

Ok.I am biased on this review. Fr Murphy was an ancestor of mine (Great great grand Uncle i believe). It is a very peacefull and historic place. Worth bringing the kids to give them a glimpse of times past.
