Clare Ancient House

In the shadows of the historic Church in Clare the Ancient House stands sentinel. Dating back to the 15C this unusual Grade I listed building boasts spectacular moulded plaster and timber work. It is thought to have started life as a mediaeval open hall house and was at various times the town workhouse and a bakers. It is now a Museum providing a fascinating 'History of Clare', with graphic displays and exhibits, computerised records and photos of the town including cutting the first sod of the railway in 1863, the opening of the Town hall in 1913 and the unveiling of the War Memorial in 1923.
