The Forge belonged to Blacksmith Michael Smyth’s. It dates back to the early 1800’s. At least 5 generations of his family have worked at the forge. Michael worked in the forge till 1997. In 2007, it was restored by the Claregalway Historical and Cultural Society. The Museum next door was opened in 2014. The Museum is a step back in time, with carpentry tools, farm equipment, pictures, documents and artifacts from the people of the parish.

Old household items: traditional ‘crane’ to support hanging ovens for cooking over an open hearth fire Musical equipment from the old Claregalway Fife and Drum Band (founded in 1909) Many old photographs and various documents.
