Additional information 

Enjoy the Museum Visitor Experience including a welcome video and wander through the Museum exhibits of needlework and much more. Marvel at the original and contemporary Mountmellick Embroidery and the dynamic women involved since 1825, ensuring it is very much a living craft and part of Irelands Intangible Cultural Heritage. Then partake of some refreshments and tasty treats to finish off your inspiring retreat. Here at the Museum our origins are deeply rooted in the past, but our vision is firmly set on the future
