Our tour started with having a wee cuppa with bread and biscuits (included in the 7.50 euro entrance fee/person). Then our tour guide Patrick took us through all of the displays in this outdoor museum and explained what life was like in this area of North Donegal from the 1840s when the Great Famine was going on to present day....

This is an excellent day out for all ages. We were really surprised at the lay out. There is an entry fee of 7.50 euro but that includes tea, brown bread and biscuits and a guided tour. We had two tour guides, Pat and Padraig. You start the tour inside a cottage that was actually lived in until 1984. This... More

Both guides were very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot from this tour While waiting for your tour to start you were served a cup of tea and biscuits we were then taken on a tour which was most interesting the best thing to do if in the area is to give it a visit

The strengths of this places are its loyalty to its heritage, its uniqueness and its informative guide. It is THE place to go in the Inishowen Peninsular, in my opinion. You get a cuppa tea and a bit of bread and a biscuit at the start and a warm welcome was given despite the driving wind and rain. One can... More

We arrived about 4 and the lovely lady advised that we would be better to come earlier and enjoy it More so not rushed. This we did and came back the next morning. Guided tour was very interesting and would recommend to all. Some of the more modern history is still a bit raw but overall it was very educational... More

We visited here in July 2015. To be honest it looks fairly unimpressive from the outside but we were really surprised at how extensive this was once we went in. €7.50 a head entrance gave you a guided tour and a traditional cup of tea and brown bread, so it was good value. This is a privately developed attraction and... More

The Village is interesting and well presented. Other reviews are accurate. It is both interesting and informative. It is not a theme park but still gives a real feel for the past. The entrence fee was 15euro for two adults and included tea and bread and jam. Everything was spotlessly clean and the tour guides were knowldgable. You can easily... More

Visited with my husband and nephews aged 15 and 11 and niece of 5. It was brilliant we all really enjoyed and the guide was excellent with so much information which we all found fascinating and at the same time highly informative. There is so much to see that you need a few hours to enjoy. It is not often... More
