About Kerry County Museum

Kerry County Museum is located at Ashe Memorial Hall, Denny Street in Tralee, Co. Kerry.

Kerry County Museum is located in the Ashe Memorial Hall, named after Thomas Ashe, a Kerryman who was a member of the Irish Volunteers and who died on hunger strike while imprisoned in Mountjoy in 1917.

The Ashe Hall was designed by Thomas J. Cullen and built with local sandstone. Completed in 1928, it was the administrative headquarters of Kerry County Council and Tralee Urban District Council until the 1980s, when it was converted into Kerry County Museum, which opened its doors to the public in 1992.

The Museum mission is to collect, record, preserve, display and communicate material relating to the archaeological, historical and cultural heritage of County Kerry. It now has over 4,000 objects in its own collection.
