Cars and coffee

we are hosting a cars and coffee style event for pre 1960 vintage vehicles here at the museum on the 7th of april from 12- 3pm, even though we cater for all ages of cars here, we felt the older vintage vehicle deserved its on event, so if you have a pre 1960 vintage car , motorbike or commercial vehicle then or would just like to look at older vehicles please come and join us here

Weoften get asked by visitors to the museum do we use the cars that are on display, the answer is yes we do, we go to lots of car runs and shows through out the year but we also take them out just for a drive when we feel like it, and dont always wait until we have a sunny day as can be seen in the photos below that were taken on the roughty valley vintage club run in march , we had our 1948 Bentley and our not so old 1990 mercedes out on that run when coditions were very wintery

West cork landrover run

We had a visit from the west cork landrover run on sunday 9th of july, as we are landrover enthusiasts we joined the run and organised an interesting route through some little used roads and valleys to arrive at the museum where we had arranged a wood fired pizza oven who kept all the group fed with delicious handmade pizzas and salad while they looked around the museum
