The Michael Collins Heritage Centre exhibits the life & tragic death of the legendary Michael Collins. A video and guided tour explore the exhibition which contains many photographs and memorabilia of the famous patriot.

Run by Mr. Collins’ direct descendants, the centre tells the story of the events of 1916 in a fitting tribute. In 2003, outside the center the ambush trail was laid out, a one hundred meter section of road designed to look like a War of Independence /Civil War ambush site. The Michael Collins Centre Clonakilty is the only facility in Ireland, at which visitors can receive a comprehensive presentation, by expert guides, on the life and times of Michael Collins.
