Discover the deep past...

The Copper Mine Museum

The Copper Mine Museum is housed in the renovated Methodist Church, built in 1845 for the Cornish Miners who came to work in the Mines at Allihies. It tells the story of Copper Mining from the Bronze Age up to the 1960’s.

This story which falls under the general headings of pre-historic mining, nineteenth century mining techniques, geology and various aspects of social history, is explored in an engaging and interconnecting way, presenting the visitor with a unique insight into a unique story.

In the Museum the geology, history and geography of this unique area is demonstrated through artefacts, models, multimedia and a small library. The museum caters for all levels of interest from the curious child to the specialist enthusiast.

 

The Copper Café

The Copper Café is a bustling place in the summer.  With seating indoors and outdoors our customers can savour coffee and a cake or a delicious seafood lunch and glass of wine.  Our sensory garden is an oasis of peace and tranquillity where you can enjoy amazing views over the Allihies Countryside and the breath taking Ballydonegan Beach.  During the summer season the Café & Gallery walls are hung with works of art for sale highlighting local, national and international artists.  Check out our facebook page for information on all our exhibitions and music gigs.
