Foxs Lane Folk Museum Cork

Come and see how your great-grandparents coped with day to day living before the invention of indoor plumbing, electricity, and the automobile.

Step back in time into a fully furnished and equipped traditional Irish country kitchen of 100 years ago.

Located in the historic town of Youghal, Fox’s Lane Museum is a small, privately run museum, providing a fascinating display of some 600 beautifully restored gadgets that trace the evolution and development of household conveniences and appliances used in the home, during the 1850s to the 1950s.

Displays feature manually operated vacuum cleaners, washing machines, and sewing machines dating back to the 1860s, the Edison Phonograph and early gramophones. See some very interesting telephones, typewriters and radios, as well as a very wide selection of food preparation and cooking equipment.
