Meet 'The Father of Modern Chemistry' in the Boyle Room. Stepping foot into this exhibition will bring you back in time to the beginning of modern science where alchemy and witch craft were the main pursuit of scientists. The exhibition offers an audio visual animation of Robert Boyle’s life and is greatly enjoyed by both adults and children alike.
The Lismore Experience is the award winning audio visual display, narrated by Niall Toibin (in English, French, German and Italian) who, in the guise of a monk, takes you on an entertaining journey through Monastic, Viking, Norman, and Medieval Lismore to the present day.
Stroll through the recently refurbished exhibition galleries of the Museum and come face to face with the historic figures that shaped Lismore Town through the ages.
Adults taking a town walking tour or enjoying the Lismore Experience audio-visual show can be accompanied by children at no extra cost. Also available is the Family Fun Pack which includes a history and nature trail that encompasses all of Lismore to keep curious little minds entertained.
Lady Louisa’s Walk is primarily a woodland walk along the riverbank where you can expect to find woodland plants such as beech, ash, ferns, spindle tree, holly and ivy as well as wood sorrel, golden saxifrage and wild garlic.
Don’t miss the Ballysaggartmore Towers - imposing gothic style gate lodges built in 1850 by Arthur Kiely Usher for his wife; and the Lismore Retail Experience offering a wide range of gift items including fantastic items by brands like Stephen Pearce Pottery and Avoca.
