Lackagh Museum and Heritage Centre
Turloughmore, Co. Galway
The Lackagh Museum in Turloughmore is set in a restored traditional Irish cottage. Its golden thatched roof is the work of local crafts people.

The cottage, which now houses the Lackagh Museum, was abandoned in the 1970s and in a few years crumbled into ruins. In recent years, it has been restored as a traditional Irish cottage.

Its golden thatched roof is the work of local crafts people. The cottage and out house contain artefacts and treasures of our ancestors. It reflects a way of life that has almost disappeared. The open fire, butter churns, a dresser full of beautiful crockery and a spinning wheel are just some of the valuable treasures stored in the cottage.

An impressive display of farm machinery can also be seen. Open by appointment - telephone in advance.
