How this works

About this group

Welcome to our museum! Founded in 1990, the aim of the Kiltartan Gregory Cultural Society is to foster and promote the history of Kiltartan and keep alive the traditions, customs and culture of this very important area for future generations. Kiltartan Gregory Museum, built in 1892, is an award winning museum that houses memorabilia, manuscripts and artefacts from nearby Coole House and Lady Gregory. We welcome local and international visitors to our hidden gem!

Reasons to support this group

  • By restoring the former Gregory-built schoolhouse at Kiltartan Cross and running it as a museum, we have created a great sense of pride in the local community. The Kiltartan Gregory Museum has been run and managed by volunteers, from the community, for the past 23 years.
  • Our museum is dedicated to promoting the life and work of Lady Gregory, W.B. Yeats and the literary aspect of South Galway. A place where local schoolchildren can visit, carry our research, do project work and experience an early 20 century classroom. A place where past pupils and their families can meet and walk down the memory lane of their childhood. We provide a genealogy service so descendant of immigrants from the parish can trace their roots. When the museum was restored from almost ruins early 1990's, a lot of work has gone into documenting the life of Lady Gregory for future generations to learn from and enjoy. We hope the museum will continue to exist for many more years, but we need all the support we can get.
  • Come and explore our beautiful picnic area where visitors and locals alike can sit, walk , play, socialize and have fun!
