The Lismore Experience at the Lismore Heritage Centre
The Lismore Experience is an audio-visual media to chart the history of Lismore accompanied by 'Brother Declan.' The award winning audio visual display is narrated by Niall Toibin (in English, French, German and Italian) who in the guise of a monk takes you on an entertaining journey through Monastic, Viking, Norman, and Medieval Lismore to the present day.
The Lismore audio visual experience takes you for a journey through the history of Lismore from 636 AD to present day. You will be seated theatre style with exhibition panels for further information. Guides available to help you enjoy your trip to Lismore. Characters such as Sir Walter Raleigh, Richard Boyle, Lord High Treasurer of Ireland, and the Dukes of Devonshire all have strong associations with the town and resided here at different periods through the centuries.
This is a 30-minute presentation. There is also a museum and information panels for you to read in the Heritage Centre to give you all the information you will need for your trip to this beautiful Heritage Town.
