Museum sights in Abbeyleix

This museum in an old school building at the northern end of Main St details the town's colourful history. One room looks at the town's carpet-making legacy – the Turkish-influenced carpets once made here were chosen to grace the floors of the Titanic – while another showcases the Mulhall Collection, a fascinating selection of memorabilia from the Morrissey family who ran the town's renowned shop and pub from 1775 to 2004. The centre also has a variety of tourist information and a great playground next door.
