I was a bit rushed but enjoyed my quick perusal if the downstairs museum. They have an upstairs one also. Great history of great Ulster and Irish regiments. Go visit.

With so many mergers in the army it's getting rarer to find individual regimental museums of this nature. Unlike places such as the IWM this is small but packed with exhibits stretching back hundreds of years through all the campaigns this infantry unit took part...More

This is a military museum treating, mainly, the history of a disbanded local regiment. It's interesting and free and you should go to it, not once, but repeatedly. It will repay each visit.

Extensive collection of uniforms, weapons and medals. Fascinating to see a Victoria Cross. The medals were well displayed in lots of pull out drawers. Free with opportunity to donate.
