See a Celtic farmstead at Craggaunowen, a carefully reconstructed lakeside village built next to a castle. An open-air museum with actors, this ring fort and early farmstead recreates life in the Bronze Age, while the castle dates back to around 1550. You'll see lots of traditional farming tools and techniques for making weapons. Check out the Brendan Boat, a representation of a vessel used by Saint Brendan of Clonfert to sail to Greenland in the 6th century.

Une jolie visite 1h à 1h30...avec des reconstitutions de scènes d'epoque, avec des figurants qui donnent volontiers des explications...une petite marche en sous bois... cela a beaucoup plu aux enfants... more »A nice visit 1 h to 1 h 30 with re-enactments of scenes of time with extras who gladly give explanations... a walk in slot wood... it rained much for children.

I really enjoyed the visit. The costumed guides were EXTREMELY knowledgeable and gave very interesting account of life from an era long past. I learned a lot that day. You need to visit on a day when the guides are present though, as they are not on site everyday.

Interesting place with loads to see. Great value especially if you get the tickets on a deal such as Groupon.
