  • Very well done with authentic settings with a great variety of period houses and artifacts. Definitely worth a stopover and tour both the grounds and the inside! Excellent job! 😀
  • Beautiful location. Self-guided tour takes approximately 30 mins. All the houses in very close proximity to each other on a small site. Tea room on site and children's play house and area.
  • Felt more like theme park than a museum, but it wasn't 'false' if that makes sense. There were lots of things on sale which you didn't need, but would be a good place to buy unique tourist gifts. If you are buying Aran items I would go to the shop at the top of the hill and buy from local artisans rather than stuff shipped in from Dublin. Both cheaper and more supportive of local talent. If you are visiting the museum and get peckish go for the veggie soup. Cheap, wholesome, filling (especially if you eat the fresh baked soda bread) and I could eat it every day. To be honest, I did when I was visiting.
  • The views coming to the village are splendid ! The beach/stand nearby is very nice and spacious. The centre itself is very cute and perfect for pictures lovers because of the rustic/traditional look ! We went for lunch break in the cafe behind, absolutely recommend it ! Great portions and very friendly staff. Very easy going, good value.
  • Beautiful place, beach is awesome buildings don't open till Easter.
