What a lovely experience! We had a good look at a variety of Irish lace, and watched how they were done, by Nora doing demonstrations. Very helpful she was in advising me with getting a project started with Irish lace included. Thank you Nora!

Stopped by to get a piece of Kenmare lace. The stores have lace made in Ireland but not actual lace made in Kenmare. The women there demostrated how the lace is made

A small but really nice exhibition with great staff. Kenmare is full of attractions, but do set aside an hour or two to explore this lovely centre. They also give out excellent free maps and guide books.

We viewed the Torc waterfall which was fantastic. We wanted to see the Muckross house and working farms but the farms had closed for the season and the house tour was an hour off. Absolutely stunning views driving through the park. Lakes galore.

This is a wonderful place to get an insight into the way things were. It must have been a tough life but it sure built people of character. Take your camera ---

Helpful staff and lots of information and exhibits. Lace center upstairs consists of one room, but you should visit.
