This welcoming, quaint and curious centre is in an old schoolhouse built in 1898. Take in an exciting exhibition and discover the rich fabric of Ardagh life down through the ages, from the roots of the village in Irish mythology to its development as an important early church site.
Over the years, Ardagh has hosted writers and musicians such as Oliver Goldsmith, Sir Walter Scott, Turlough O'Carolan, and Maria Edgeworth. The village has two beautiful churches that are worth viewing, along with a clock tower and the ruins of the original St. Mel's Cathedral.
Creative Ardagh transformed the Creativity Centre into a place in which people of all ages are encouraged to explore their creativity, be inspired by the beautiful setting, and create their own individual artwork. They host family events, creativity mornings, group classes, and drop-in art days.
