A Museum with the most extensive collection of Irish History

The Hunt Museum moved to Limerick Customs House in 1997, thanks to John and Gertrude Hunt, generous donors who originally set up the museum. Admission is free (like most museums in Ireland), and takes at least a good hour and a half to get around…

Its collection is quite remarkable, and has objects of great value covering the whole of Irish History. (Which makes it a perfect way to discover the Irish past in a proper way)

Among its collection, you will find some particularly exceptional pieces, including :

  • arrowheads and axes from the Neolithic period
  • of ceramics
  • the famous Cashel bell (9th century)
  • celtic crosses (5th to 13th century), including the Cross of Antrim
  • dublin porcelain
  • leonardo da Vinci’s Bronze Horse
  • the crucifix Mary Stuart wore at her execution..
  • or paintings from the 19th and 20th century
