Blackthorn Café

Gift Shop

The GAA Museum gift shop has re-opened. The shop is open to the public, so you don’t have to book a tour to visit the shop. But of course you can visit after your tour also! 

A limited number of people will be allowed in the shop so you may have to join a socially distanced queue before entering. We encourage visitors to pay using a contactless method where possible.
