The De Valera Museum and Bruree Heritage Centre uses audio-visuals, graphic panels, set pieces and displays of personal memorabilia to tell the story of Eamon de Valera and of the area which is credited with forming his character.
A leisurely browse around the de Valera museum and Bruree Heritage Centre will serve as a lesson in both the political history of Ireland and the local history of a small Irish village. Dedicated to Eamon de Valera [1882-1975], former President of Ireland and one of the country’s most famous statesmen, it houses a unique collection of personal belongings of this historic figure, as well as a wide range of articles which record life in Bruree in the early 20th century.
This visitor centre is located where Eamonn de Valera, former President of Ireland, grew up. The cottage in which he lived is now preserved and the national school he attended houses a museum dedicated to his memory.
