    Adage Heritage Centre an ideal stop to 're fresh. Free parking to the rear of the centre with great toilet facilities, nice coffee shop with a light menu. From here you can wander around the village and check out the beautiful thatched cottages. Ideal stop on the way to the Cliffs of Moher from Killarney

    Coming from North America, I am so thrilled with the amount of history here. To be able to see building that have been around hundreds of years and hear the stories of the past just brings history to life. Love the area, love the country!
