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.
