  • What a gem, small but perfectly formed. So lovely, so much information and so much detail and so well laid out and tells a great story. And what a setting, lovely beautiful cove and area. If you are in the vicinity at all its worth the trip. I'd even say worth the drive up from Sligo, hit Slieve League before or after and you will have a magical day.
  • Well worth the visit and the drive as it is in very remote but very beautiful part of Donegal and not far from Slieve league cliffs which are also a must visit,some of the buildings are very old as are most of the artifacts inside them,the food in the café is very good.
  • It's an ok place. It definitely lacks a tour guide. You just wander around and watch stuff from 18th-20th centrury. I'd rather go to Famine Village, which is 1h drive north of Glencolumbkille.
  • A collection of local houses (including equipment), like they used to be between 1700 and 1900. Even if the houses itself are not originals, the original equipment makes visible, how people lived and what their work was. Interesting..
  • Not expensive and really lovely folk village. Everything is well built and every part of the minitown is well explained. Sadly, the tearoom did not meet our expectations. But the folk village itself is worth the visit.
