No trip to the Midlands is complete without a visit to the Derryglad Folk & Heritage  Museum, which is hidden in south Roscommon in a land of lakes and rivers.

The collection deals with Farm & Folklife in Ireland from the 18th century to the recent past.

The museum is privately owned and run by the Finneran Family and houses a unique 35-year collection of over 6,000 items. These include; horse drawn machinery restored to the original working order, tradesman's tools and butter making equipment.

Derryglad Folk & Heritage Museum is an ideal destina­tion for school tours, ICA Guilds, Ladies Clubs, Farming Groups, Vintage Clubs, Historical So­cieties, Day Care Centres and much more. For students, a visit to the museum is of great benefit in their study of our history, heritage and folk culture. 

For the not so young, it's a step back in time, or a nostalgic trip down memory lane, and a picture of bygone days.
