Cavan County MuseumBallyjamesduff Cavan - Ireland East
The Cavan County Museum is located in a magnificent 19th Century building designed by William Hague, in Ballyjamesduff, County Cavan. It is beautifully situated amid extensive grounds, among the east Cavan lakes and drumlins. It was established in 1996 by Cavan County Council to collect, conserve, document and display all aspects of the culture, history and traditions of County Cavan in an informative and entertaining manner, promoting an awareness of Cavan’s rich heritage. A tour of the museum through its elegant exhibition galleries provides an insight into the heritage of Cavan from antiquity to recent times. Exhibition galleries trace the history and heritage of County Cavan from prehistoric and pre-Christian time, to rural life as it was in the 1950's. Rare and precious artefacts on display include the 4000 year old Killycluggin Stone, three faced Corleck Head, the 1000 year old Lough Errol log boat, medieval sheela-na-gigs and the 18th Century Cavan Mace. There are also many costumes, implements and machinery that were used by our ancestors on display. There is also a small coffee shop and gift shop on site.
