The Burren
Located in the picturesque Burren, the restored thatched homestead and courtyard, surrounded by the unspoilt landscape offers a must-see attraction in the beautiful rugged landscape of the Burren close to Carron village. The locality is rich in archeology and biodiversity.                          
Michael Cusack
Michael Cusack was born in 1847 during one of the worst years of the famine. He did not attend school until he was 11 but went on to be a teacher and as founder of the GAA, one of the most influential characters in Irish cultural history, leaving a legacy to benefit generations.            

We´re delighted to announce our new Burren walk - 'The Cusack Way'. 

Visitors to the Centre can explore the Burren on the wonderful new 6km trail ‘The Cusack Way’, which starts and finishes at the Centre. This linear trail takes in many interesting historical monuments en route to Cahercommaun Cliff Fort.   The high altitude of the fort offers spectacular views of the surrounding landscape.


We are now taking bookings for our Schools Tour Programme 2013. In addition to tours of the Michael Cusack Centre, we are offering combo tour packages in conjunction with other visitor attractions in the area.  Please call 065-7089944 or email info@michaelcusack.ie for further details.
