Irish Famine Cottages, Dingle

(3.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Experience life on the farm at Irish Famine Cottages, a cottage built using stone and mud in the 19th century. Discover how people ate, how animals were kept, and how inhabitants told time during this somber period. Just behind the cottage, look for a large beehive hut believed to have lasted 800 years. Today the cottages are used for working sheepdog performances, and you can watch these sheep-farmers and their dogs herding livestock. Plan to see Irish Famine Cottages and other attractions that appeal to you using our Dingle vacation builder.

  • 這個景點是參加 Ring of Kerry 這個當地旅遊團會經過的景點之一,導遊會提及百年前,造成愛爾蘭本地人口銳減的饑荒史,這個小屋保留了當年人們生活的情況。 
  • Gabriel was an amazing host and fascinating to watch. The famine cottages, even for their sad history, are moving to visit.
