Creative Ardagh


Learn about Irish mythology, early Christianity, local writers and life 100 years ago at Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre. Create art, explore your creativity and be inspired.  This welcoming, quaint and curious centre is in an old schoolhouse built in 1898. Take in an exciting exhibition and discover the rich fabric of Ardagh life down through the ages, from the roots of the village in Irish mythology to its development as an important early church site. 

They host family events, creativity mornings, group classes, and drop-in art days.  Browse in their craft shop and buy locally produced pieces.  They stock a wide range of work by very creative people from Longford, Westmeath, Leitrim, Cavan and Roscommon.  Handmade ceramics, soaps, crochet, stonework, paintings and jewellery are just some of the beautiful products available.  For more information see Creative Ardagh.
