Cork Butter Museum

The Cork Butter Museum is a unique institution, celebrating one of the great success stories of Ireland, the butter trade.  Located in the historic Shandon area of Cork city, the story begins with the central role of dairy culture in the Island of Saints and Scholars.  The Museum goes on to describe the internationally important Butter Exchange in nineteenth century Cork, the traditional craft of home butter making and the modern success of the Kerrygold brand.  In the course of this story, the commercial, social, and domestic life of Ireland is recalled.
