If you've a spare hour then the museum in the square is an excellent place to visit. There are 4 short films and displays about the history of the town, Earnest Shackleton and the first world war.

To begin with, we entered there whilst they where on their break, however, instead of been dismissing and annoyed, they recommeded a nice walk that we could go whilst we waited for them to open, which was very nice of them to do this especially since we had disturbed them whilst having their time off.

After going for a wander around Athy, we went to the museum. To begin with you are handed a little device which sort of reminds me of a televison control that enables you to learn about each exhibit and the history, and than directed to the audio room where you learn about the canals, car racing and about a polar exhibition, which was informative, and afterwards you can wander around the musuem at your leisure. You learn all about the history all the area and about the first world war, which was very informative.

So all in all, worth a visit if you find yourself in Athy.

Very well organised and full of local history. Great display of polar expedition and World War 1 events.
Caution- restaurants in Athy disappointing. Better to eat in Kilcullen.
