Michael Collins Centre

Lonely Planet review

A visit to the Michael Collins Centre is an excellent way to make sense of his life and that period of Ireland’s history. A tour reveals photos, letters and a reconstruction of the 1920s country lane where Collins was killed, complete with armoured vehicle. The centre runs tours of the crucial locations in Collins’ life on occasion. The centre is signposted off the R600 between Timoleague and Clonakilty.
