This interpretative center in the town's Old Courthouse tells the history of Lismore, a charming town founded by St. Carthage in the year 636. There's an interesting multimedia display on the town's unique treasures, including the Book of Lismore, which dates back 1,000 years, and the Lismore crosier (1116). Both were discovered hidden in the walls of Lismore Castle in 1814. The presentation also provides an excellent introduction to the surrounding area and its attractions. The center also offers several walking tours of Lismore town and cathedral, leaving daily at 11am and 3pm.
