  • I call in here whenever I'm down the road learning Irish in Oideas Gael. The Folk Village is well worth a visit, and you can get yourself a nice bowl of soup to help you cope with the unique challenges of Ireland's summertime weather. 😀
  • Really nice example what life would be like over the generations. I strongly urge anyone in the area to spend a few hours exploring here. Staff were amazing taking the time to answer all questions
  • Very steep drive. Scenery amazing. On arrival to Folk Village you can see a wonderful beach. Staff in Folk village very friendly they allowed us to bring our two dogs round the cottages. It was very interesting and it kind of gives you a feel on how people lived in these hard times. Brilliant wee Easter trip 2016 will definitely be back.
  • It was a lovely place to visit and to discover life in rural Ireland and to see what life was like from a societal,religious and educational aspect.the shop and pub and the school captured the difference between the past and present and the similarities to modern day that you feel that you can identify with the protagonists and participants in ordinary life in the rural landscape.
  • As much educational museum as folk village. Many historical exhibits about life in rural Ireland over the ages.
