About Áras Cilian (St Kilian Heritage Centre)

  • Áras Cilian (St Kilian Heritage Centre)

St. Kilian’s Heritage Centre celebrates the life, work, martyrdom and cult of St. Kilian who was born in Mullagh in 640 AD. Maps, photographs, statuettes, manuscripts and art reproductions bring to life the work of Irish missionaries in Europe in the 6th & 7th centuries. The exhibition traces the development of Gaelic script for Ogham writing of the 4th - 7th centuries and the Wurzburg Glosses (earliest example of written Irish c.750) to the illuminated script of the Book of Kells. The audio-visual film illustrates the life of Kilian in Wurzburg and the Germany/Mullagh connection. Ogham stones found in Cavan can be seen at the centre. A craft shop and tea room are also available.

Opening times:  Easter to Oct
