Directions to Clare Heritage and Genealogical Centre
Ireland has had a long history of emigration throughout the ages, and County Clare is no different. In the past two hundred years, it is estimated that over 112,000 people emigrated from the county. By comparison the present population stands at just under 90,000. From the US to Australia, South Africa to Britain, mainland Europe to Asia, there are many people who can claim Clare heritage.
The Clare Heritage and Genealogical Centre offers people the opportunity to trace their ancestors and develop an awareness of their own personal heritage. Here there is also an award-winning museum that tells the story of 19th century Ireland. Housed within a converted church, the main theme of the museum is Ireland’s West 1800-1860, covering topics such as famine and emigration, landlords and tenants, and the music and culture of the county.
Admission to the centre costs €4 for adults, €3 for children aged 6-18, and is free for children under 5 years. On-street parking is available in the surrounding area.
Opening Times: All year, Mon - Fri 09.00hrs - 17.00hrs. Museum May -October 10.00hrs - 18.00hrs.
