Strokestown Park and the Irish National Famine Museum provide a unique opportunity for people to discover more about significant aspects of Irish history. The combination of the Strokestown Archive, the Big House and all its contents, the demesne, gardens and the close relationship to the town create a powerful combination and opportunity for those wishing to discover more.
What makes Strokestown Park even more interesting is that there is also a fascinating contemporary history. Over the last 30 years Jim Callery has worked tirelessly to preserve the estate and archive for the benefit of everyone. The Inaugural Famine Summer School is another example of this desire to share the many special aspects of Strokestown Park to build wider support and help ensure that it remains in good heart for future generations to experience and enjoy.
