Visitor Information

How to find us

Nano Nagle Place is on Douglas Street, two blocks south of the south channel of the River Lee.

To walk to us from Patrick’s Street walk along Princes Street, cross the South Mall, walk along Parliament Street and over Parliament Bridge. After crossing the bridge cross over George’s Quay and continue straight along Mary Street. You will find Nano Nagle Place at the end of Mary Street.

Driving to us is more complicated! Douglas Street is one way in front of Nano Nagle Place. The best way to approach is via from the direction of Barrack Street. You can also drive down Evergreen Road and take a sharp right onto Douglas Street from there. Please note we have no car park (they didn’t need them in the 18th century!). Please see our note about parking below.

Heritage Experience

Heritage Experience Opening Times
Tuesday – Friday 11.00 – 16.00
Saturday & Sunday 11.00 – 16.00
 Bank Holidays closed

Our interactive heritage experience tells the story of 18th Century Cork, Nano Nagle’s inspiring work and the lives and work of the Presentation Sisters over time, and today. Children are our very special guests, just as Nano would have wanted. We work hard to make sure there are lots of things for younger visitors to see and do during a visit to the heritage experience.

Guided Tours

Our heritage experience is designed to be self guided, but we run a guided tour at 15.00 every day. The guided tour includes access to extra spaces, the Artefact Room and Miss Nagle’s Parlour, both housed in the oldest building on our site. We aim to keep our guided tour to around 50 minutes in length. Afternoon tours are often given by a Presentation Sister. Please note, if you are a group of 10 or over we are happy to facilitate a guided tour outside these hours Tuesday-Friday  – it is not necessary to come at 15.00, but you must book these tours in advance, please click HERE for more details
