Originally the depot of the Connaught Rangers, Renmore has been an Irish Army base since 1922. Several exhibits commemorate the Connaught Rangers with uniforms, weapons and a regimental drum on display. The War of Independence and Civil War displays include weapons landed from the Asgard in 1914, and guns belonging to Dan Breen, Michael Collins and the Countess Markievicz. There is also a motorcycle belonging to IRA leader Liam Mellows. Among the items featured from the Emergency period is a parachute used by downed German airmen in Galway .

Finally the various peacekeeping missions of the Defence Forces are illustrated, most poignantly by weapons from the 1960 Niemba ambush in the Congo in which 9 Irish soldiers died.
