A visit to the Heritage Centre is a must for all those wishing to learn of the town's illustrious past. The Heritage Centre has an award winning audio visual display of Lismore history in which your host Brother Declan (alias Niall Toibin) takes you on an enthralling journey through time, starting with the arrival of St. Carthage in 636 and bringing you right up to the present. Stroll through the recently refurbished exhibition galleries and come face to face with the historic figures that shaped Lismore Town through the ages. There is also a new exhibition space dedicated to the life and works of Robert Boyle 'The Father of Modern Chemistry' and author of 'Boyles Law'.
The Heritage Centre also offers walking tours of the town, a great way to get acquainted with the formidable history of this picturesque heritage town. Hear of Viking raids, treasure hidden in castle walls and the saints who studied at the University of Lismore. See where Fred Astaire supped Guinness on his holidays and what Thackeray described as "some of the most beautiful rich country ever seen".
