We had a good distance of just under four hours to travel. It is located in Tralee and we opted to take M7 highway and then N21 to reach there. We reached Dennis Street by 11 o’clock and took entry tickets for two adults as for Aaron, it was free. The museum was housed in Ashe Memorial Hall and opened at 9.30 am until 5.30 pm.
The museum offered extensive collections related to archeology, heritage, history and culture of Kerry County exhibited in various galleries. We entered the main gallery that offered invaluable collections of archaeological articles and telling dioramas of full-size. There were also models intricately crafted and information on Kerry’s people in the past until to the present displayed on the wall.
There was also an Archeological Hall located on the ground floor. I had a good look of the medieval tools and techniques used by the archeologists. There was also revealing information on the development of techniques from the past to the present.
In the ground floor, we had a walk into the Medieval Experience, which dates back to 1450 AD. It was a chilling experience knowing the life in Tralee streets, their clothing and food. Aaron was puzzled and kept asking me why it looked so.
Our trip ended in a great way with a journey to past and to present at the Kerry County Museum Ireland. I vowed I will be here again later as the whole place was mesmerizing.
