Lusk Heritage Centre

Lusk Heritage Centre comprises of a round tower, a medieval belfry and a 19th century church. They form a unit, although they were built over a period of almost a thousand years.

The monastery was founded by St MacCullin in early Christian times, and the name Lusk derives from the cave (Irish 'lusca') where MacCullin was buried after his death in 497 AD.

The unusual square sixteenth-century belfry incorporates a sixth century Round Tower with three later towers built to match, all attached to a nineteenth-century church which contains some fine mediaeval tombs.

The belfry now houses an exhibition on medieval churches of North County Dublin and also the magnificent 16th century effigy tomb of Sir Christopher Barnewell and his wife Marion Sharl.
It also has a magnificent sixteenth-century effigy tomb.

In the nearby former church of St MaCullin is the Willie Monks Museum, which portrays rural life in the locality between sixty and one hundred years ago.

Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.


Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
