This award winning eco-building houses the Lismore Gaelic heritage museum, thatched cottage, Cafe and Gift Shop.
Lismore Gaelic Heritage Centre was built by Comann Eachdraidh Lios Mor - which translates as Lismore Historical Society. The present site was opened in 2007. It consists of a museum, a rebuilt cottars cottage, a reference and lending library with internet access, a meeting room, gift shop, toilets, disabled access and disabled toilet and the Isle of Lismore Cafe. This typical 'cottar's' - house (circa 18th/19th Century) celebrated its rebirth on the 19th August 2002. Faithfully rebuilt, it is a look back in time at our islands past and an illustration of the traditional skills which many islanders have.
Lismore Gaelic Heritage Centre is also known as " lonad Naomh Moluag" in Gaelic which translates as "The gathering place of St Moluag".
