Isle of Lismore

A stunning ecologically friendly building, opened in March 2007, housing a museum charting island life throughout the ages.

A stunning ecologically friendly building, opened in March 2007, housing a museum charting island life throughout the ages. On the same site is an award winning 19th century Cottar’s Cottage, fully restored, a time warp of island life in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; a library/research and conference room; a gift shop and café.

Information is scarce about settlers from prehistoric times – but we can show you some artefacts.

The story of the work of Saint Moluag whose evangelising base was Lismore, was not as well documented as that of his contemporary Saint Columba of Iona – but we can tell you something about this important saint.

Our island has a broch, two castles and a cathedral – as well as lime kilns. Our museum contains much information about these and about the people of Lismore and their ancestors.

Gaelic speakers and those without the Gaelic who have an interest in Lismore life can research in our reference library.
