Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I looked on the visit Ireland website and it said the opening hours , I drove about two hours to visit on a Sunday in august when you would have thought it being the height of the tourist season ,would have been a peak day , Dev being half American and well know outside Ireland I should think plenty of foreign visitors would be interested and then like me disappointed . It was hard to find and was locked up with a notice on the door saying you need a appointment - this is a little difficult as you only know it when you have already arrived .
I was frustrated and sad to be let down like this and felt it a poor reflection on the country as tourist destination ( not so much the attraction by visit Ireland for having misleading information on there website.
As the reviews from people who were lucky enough to get in seem positive , I would suggest ringing before you visit to avoid wasting your time

Nice museum with lots of original items. Learnt quite a bit. Well worth spending and hour or so. Nice heritage centre attached. A visit to De Valera"s cottage can be arranged as it is outside the village.

I truly thought I knew everything there was to know about this man but i was so wrong. You are taken back in time visually to his school days and early years of his life. Through set panels and audio visual along with many personal memorabilia you are brought through his life, it was excellent. I found it difficult to understand why this museum is not advertised more as so much is there to view.

It's a real hidden gem. Fantastic & enthusiastic curator Tracy Lenihan. Treated to a cup of tea at the end of the tour then brought us our to the house and opened it for us. The OPW has taken charge of the house but the museum needs funds to help with repairs and signage.

Very detailed history on Eamon De Valera with a lot of original items from his childhood. Was also able to visit the cottage where he grew up. Very interesting museum and would recommend a visit

Hidden gems in the historic village of Bruree. The museum in the old school house has a lot of memorabilia relating to the former President, Eamonn DeValera and a fine collection of local artefacts. All for €5 which includes a DVD presentation. The people running the centre are local volunteers.
DeValera's cottage is located about a mile outside the village. Mr O'Donoughue volunteered to take us out to see the cottage.
To round off our visit they took us to Briar Cottage across the road from the museum. Vikki Loving has restored the cottage to its original form. It was built in 1860. The cottage now houses an awesome collection of theatrical memorabilia, posters, photographs & costumes.
