Why join Lough Gur as a Member?

Membership provides you with 12 months free access to our Heritage Centre, early access to event details and access to online members content & discounts.

Most importantly, by joining, you are contributing to a cause that works to promote, protect and preserve a site of international significance.

I registered with the Online Shop, is that the same as Membership?

No. While the online store does create a Lough Gur account, a membership subscription is not automatically associated with it. To add Lough Gur membership, log into your account and then visit the Membership Registration page.

Alternatively you can register a new/separate account associated with your membership via the Membership Registration page.

Where do I manage my accounts?

For your online shopping menu you can visit “My Online Store Account” to manage such things as recent orders, your shipping address and other such account details.

To manage your membership options, select “Manage Membership” under the Members Area menu option. Here you can manage your subscriptions and payment details.

When does my membership become active?

If you signup online your membership will be activated immediately. If you takeout membership directly at the Heritage Center or over the phone, it may take up to 3 business days for your account to be activated. However if you signup at the Heritage Center you will have immediate access to the exhibition area.

What is the duration of my membership?

Membership is for a period of 12 months.

Will I receive a Membership Cards?

Yes. We are working diligently to ensure that our membership cards are issued as soon as possible after your registration.
