Be enthralled by a bespoke guided tour of the Michael Davitt Museum. Michael Davitt was a child of the Great Famine who became a champion of the oppressed worldwide. Authenticity is added to the experience as the collection is housed in the church in which Davitt was baptised while guides dressed in 19th Century costumes will relate his tale of toil and triumph. Step back in time and tour the adjoining Friary in the accompaniment of a 13th Century Dominican Friar. This Norman structure contains some of the finest medieval sculptures on the island of Ireland including 15th Century carvings and beautifully preserved windows. Be astounded by tales of death, destruction, despair and hope.
