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.

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.
Fantastic place, extremely interesting and not expensive. Also loved how quiet it was
Interesting place with loads to see. Great value especially if you get the tickets on a deal such as Groupon.
A bit of a hidden gem, definitely pay it a visit when you are in the area.
Great place to take the kids, and it's a lovely woodland setting.
