The Museum of Country Life is located in Turlough Village, 8 km northeast of Castlebar, County Mayo in Ireland. Established in 2001, the museum is part of the National Museum of Ireland. The museum exhibits the way of life of rural Irish people between 1850 and 1950, and it is in the grounds of Turlough Park House. There are displays about the home, the natural environment, trades and crafts, communities, and working on the land and water.
The landlord’s old house lies beside the Museum of Country Life. The upstairs of the house is used as offices by the museum staff, and the downstairs is on show to the public.
