  • In its 50th year this place is a wee historical gem. Tea rooms serving traditional bakes and refreshments with a craft shop. Can cater for large tour groups. Accross the road from the local beach with stunning views, kids love this place. Tourist information point.
  • Takes you back in time to Ireland of the last century. Professionaly put together well worth a visit
  • A very interesting place to visit to get a insight for how people lived in the past. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable in answering questions. Folk Village is not far from Slieve League and the Silver Strand at Malinbeg which are also well worth a visit to make for a very enjoyable day trip.
  • It was very interesting to see the way the old fishermen and their families used to live in this village. It was eye-opening to see the poor health conditions of the time.
  • 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.
