“Lovely museum”

“This is a beautiful museum, not a far walk from King John’s Castle. The Hunt exhibits one of Ireland’s greatest private collections of art and antiquities dating from the Neolithic period to the 20th century. It’s open from 10-5 daily but pay attention to closing around the holidays. Sculptures in the garden are great as well.”
