This is the place to go if you're interested in local Clare history and genealogy. Great resources and very helpful staff.

My wife and I arrived at the museum at about 4pm on Saturday afternoon to find the museum closed. Very unexpected and disappointed.

“Dreadful Place, Rude Staff...waste of Public Money!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2012

Recently visited the library to join and get some books but left with very little. Found the staff member I met rude and unhelpful..not welcoming at all. No ebooks, an old, scruffy, run down and unkempt facility...wouldn't bother visiting here unless you were desperate...Not up to date at all with technology. Don't know how these staff members still have a job! After all it is a public facility. My little girls nearly had an accident on some ripped carpet on the way out...bad visit overall!
