Waterford County Museum

The museum hosts a permanent display on the history of Waterford County and also runs occassional temporary exhibitions on other local history topics. Admission is free. It is run on a voluntary basis by the Waterford County Museum Society (a registered charity).

The Museum Society is also interested in publishing various books and pamphlets on items of historical and local interest. A number of these have been published over the years.

In 1999 the Museum moved to the old Town Hall in St. Augustine Street. This building was originally a grain store built by Thomas Buckley, a local merchant, in the late 18th century. In 2009 the newly refurbished museum was officially opened. They welcome all visitors including school tours.

The aims of the Society are :

  • To present the history of Dungarvan and west Waterford area in a chronological order through a series of well illustrated panels and displays.
  • To acquire and preserve individual items or collections of local interest.
  • To encourage public interest in local history.
