Welcome to the Michael Cusack Centre
Discover the Michael Cusack Centre in the heart of the Burren region
The Cusack Centre, Carron, Co. Clare is situated amongst the rugged beauty of the Burren. We are an exhibition centre founded in memory of the legendary Irishman Michael Cusack. Our aim here at the centre is to relate his remarkable story through our audio visual exhibit set in the original thatched cottage where Michael was born in 1847 during the Famine years.
Irish History & The GAA
It is a truly immersive experience combining Irish history, culture and heritage which expresses the story of Michael Cusack’s life and times and explores his most outstanding legacy: the GAA. After this multimedia experience visitors can relax in the Tea Rooms, picnic area or wander further afield along The Cusack Way, one of many Burren walks, the trail threads through the stunning Burren terrain all the way to the megalithic Cahercommaun Celtic Cliff Fort.
