Nice little museum (especially considering admission is free), and although you couldn't really spend more than an hour there, there is a good range of exhibits.
We really enjoyed the WW1 trench exhibit, which was a clever use of space, and the bronze age items are particularly notable for such a small museum. Although not afforded much space, the Megaloceros giganteus (Giant Irish Deer) skull and antlers are fascinating, and although not as well preserved as the Dublin specimens, they were found locally.
Also worth mentioning is that an exhibit on the now-deconsecrated Cork Synagogue is towards the back, with some of the furniture and ceremonial items on display, they even saved the seal of David from above the door. It was nice to see that they haven't ended up in a skip.
