They were able to give us details and really useful pointers to expand our knowledge, and even gave us directions to where the family had lived which was only a stones throw away, and saved us...

Our primary reason for visiting the Nenagh Heritage Museum was to visit the North Tipperary Genealogy Centre, but we also enjoyed seeing the museum exhibits. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and are a great help to anybody with North Tipperary ancestry

My kids loved visiting here and hearing the story of the Cormack brothers, two innocent men who were executed here. They loved the fact that they could see the cells where the condemned spent their last hours.

Staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, and there is also a resident genealogist for those doing detective work on family history from the area. The gaol experience is eery and... More

The heritage Museum in Nenagh is a quaint look back at local Irish history. Whilst the staff are extremely friendly the displays could do with a little TLC. In essence I wouldn't recommend visiting without being booked onto a tour as without the staff there to bring the artefacts on display to life the place is just a little tired.
