  • Irish folk museum in a beautiful setting. Unique, insightful and educational. I would highly recommend this museum if you're looking to learn more about rural Irish history. The tearooms also serve delicious local food at a very reasonable price.
  • Lovely little folk village with a small shop with lots of handcrafted gifts and presents for bringing home. You can get a tour around and go to the cafe afterwards and have some delicious Irish scones and tea. Straight across is a beach which is lovely for a nice walk.
  • Amazing wee village The views are breathing well worth a visit. We will most definitely be going back again. Done my first half marathon here. The fish and chips are the best l have ever had. Love this place.
  • Cute cottages and beautuful shop. Brings you back to how it was back in the olden days. Close to the fabulous Silver strand beach.
  • They've done a great job here preserving a more recent history. You can really get a feel for how folks in a rural village lived.
