This is a must for all those wishing to learn of the town’s illustrious past. The Heritage Centre has an award winning audio visual display of Lismore history (in English, French, German and Italian) in which your host Brother Declan (alias Niall Toibin) takes you on an enthralling journey through time, starting with the arrival of St. Carthage in 636 and bringing you right up to the present. Stroll through the recently refurbished exhibition galleries and come face to face with the historic figures that shaped Lismore Town through the ages. Also here is a new exhibition space dedicated to the life and works of Robert Boyle ‘The Father Of Modern Chemistry’ and author of ‘Boyles Law. A complete education package including a cartoon style video on his life and works has been developed to introduce science to the younger visitor.
As you arrive in Lismore follow the black and gold signposts which will lead you to the Heritage Centre and the Tourist Information Office. We are located in the centre of Lismore directly across the road from both Lismore Hotel and the Millennium Park. The town has free public car park and coach facilities.
