Knights and Conquests Exhibition Centre
Granard, Co. Longford
Visit The Knights and Conquests Exhibition Centre where history comes alive in the shadow of Ireland’s highest motte and bailey. Expect to be immersed in fascinating Norman history and much more.

An interactive adventure awaits each visitor to the heart of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands.

Explore the exhibition at your own pace. Begin in the audio visual room, watch and listen to the interactive props. Get to grips with a Norman style sword, explore how they built motte and baileys and latter day stone fortifications. Follow the timeline and come right up to speed with Granard’s more recent history of Michael Collins' visits and his enduring love story with Kitty Kiernan.

A visit to Granard is not complete without climbing to the summit of Ireland's highest motte and bailey to take in a bird's eye view of Ireland's Hidden Heartlands in all its glory.

Take to the road less traveled and uncover so much more!
