As one of the top visitor attractions in West Cork, we love to welcome groups to Skibbereen Heritage Centre, however, due to the current Corona Virus restrictions, the maximum number of people we can accept in a single group is 6 people.
We do hope to offer this facility again in future and so, with this in mind, here’s what we offer groups in more ‘normal times’.
We offer a personalised service for groups, with a guided tour of the Famine Exhibition by a tour guide/historian. We cater for all levels of interest and build our presentation around the needs of your group.
With adjacent bus parking, a 5-minute walk to Skibbereen town to enjoy the shops after the group visit is easily done while leaving the coach parked in our coachpark.
As a totally indoor activity, there is no need to worry about inclement weather. A visit to Skibbereen Heritage Centre is one of the best things to do on a rainy day in West Cork.
Groups MUST be prebooked – please give us a ring in advance to make sure that we can accommodate your group on 028-40900.
Please enquire about our special admission prices for groups. Easy access for coaches to Skibbereen Heritage Centre – ask about the best way to drive to our Centre.
Approaching Skibbereen from Cork on the N71:
Turn right at the first roundabout (signposted N71 west) to bypass Skibbereen town. At the next roundabout, take the first exit to follow the N71 west out the Schull road. Approx. 1km out this road turn left over the bridge and a left again on the other side of the bridge. This will bring you onto Upper Bridge Street. The coach parking is approx. 1.5km down this road, on the left, outside the stone wall surrounding Skibbereen Heritage Centre carpark. It is 30m from there to the front door.
