The National Famine Museum Strokestown Park opens its doors to the public today.

It has been transformed with a €5 million investment from Fáilte Ireland and Westward Holdings Ltd in partnership with the Irish Heritage Trust.

 From today visitors can enjoy a new state-of-the-art National Famine Museum, telling the complete story of the Great Famine for the first time.

Since 2015 the Irish Heritage Trust, a not-for-profit organisation, cares for and manages the property and has overseen this significant redevelopment project.

The new visitor experience includes for 16 euro a  ‘3 in one' ticket offering the new National Famine Museum, the historic walled gardens and woodland walk at Strokestown Park and the Palladian House with its original furnishings and features. The House re-opens for tours later in July once conservation works have been completed.

A new Woodland Café has also been opened located in the old granary of Strokestown Park House
