Clare Heritage and Genealogical Centre

Situated in the picturesque Village of Corofin less than 10  minutes walk from Lakefield Lodge B&B you will find the Clare Heritage & Genealogical  Centre.

The Heritage Museum tells the story of the 19th Century Ireland, a fascinating window on the past, simply but effectively presented.

The Themes covered include –

  • Famine and Emigration
  • Landlords and Tenants
  • Music and Culture
  • Traditional Ways of Life

The interpretative Museum enables visitors to understand more clearly the traumas of 19th century Ireland and the root causes of mass emigration in that period.  It is also an appropriate setting for some fine sculptural exhibits including the original Tau Cross.

The Heritage Museum is housed in what once was St.Catherine’s Church which was build in 1718 by a 1st cousin of Queen Anne.

The Genealogical Research Centre was founded in 1982 by the late Dr. Ignatius (Naoise) Cleary and is now recognised nationally and internationally as the leading Centre of it’s kind in the Country. The Centre offers a professional service to persons wishing to trace their Clare ancestry.  It now holds data on just over 500,000 people who were born in this County during the 19th and into the middle of the 20th century. This is the most comprehensive research material held at any one centre to enable persons with Clare roots to trace their ancestry.

At Lakefield Lodge B&B we will be happy to make advance appointments for you if required.
