Had a great day out at this attraction just outside Clonmany. Organised tour to explain the exhibits of which there are many. My favourite is the Safe House! A good way to understand a little bit more about the troubles.

I arrived early and was given tea and biscuits. This is a family run attraction and they were very friendly and interesting to talk too. I really enjoyed the famine village, I learnt a lot and it was clear how much work has gone into this attraction. It really covers a wide range of the history of the area and... More

When visiting Ireland this year we decided to visit this attraction. It was both informative and interesting. The tour guide really new his history and didn't get involved with the political issues. Included in the entrance fee was a pot of tea, soda bread & rich tea biscuits. From the carpark you can visit the beach and enjoy the scenery... More

Yes, you should make it a point to visit this out of the way location on the Inishowen Peninsula. Your visit starts with being directed to a building across the way to have tea and biscuits and wait for your tour. (We can't eat the biscuits.) You just sit down and it is brought to you. Next you go into... More

The Doagh famine village is an amazing experience for all who will visit. From the minute you get there when you are given tea and biscuits until you take the tour and wander around you will love it all. Initially you will get a tour of the village (we had Paddy who was brilliant) and then once that is complete... More

I made a special trip to the Doagh Famine Village based on the stellar reviews here on TripAdvisor – as of June 2015 it was rated as the #2 attraction (out of 214) in all of County Donegal. If that is the case, it is a sad statement for the county. This place is only slightly better than your average... More

It was informative, unrushed & very welcoming. The different areas were well presented & told the story well. I do wonder how far we have come on some issues, maybe not far enough. It was unbiased in the retelling of the Irish history. Tea was offered as part of the tour. A very pleasant day indeed with photo oportunities
