Very interesting living history walk. Be prepared to tramp around, and if it is raining, forget it! Its interesting and great fun for everyone, its self paced, and it is hit or miss if you find someone 'home'.

The farms are a brill way of seeing how people lived on Irish Farms in years gone by, they are brought to life by having people actually cooking and doing jobs around them, they all loved to talk to the visitors and were very intersting.

There is also a farm area with puppies and... More

We ended up walking the loop, apparently there is a bus that will shuttle you, but we didn't see it. It is a good walk, but if you take 1-1/2 hours or so it's not too bad. It would have been nice to see more animals and none of the trade huts (carpenter, blacksmith, etc) were running, the only ones... More

The replicas are amazing, the "farmers" have a lot of insight into the past and can explain everything you see plus have most answers to questions. We went on a day that there was heavy rain so it was pretty quiet and we had a lot of time to go through without feeling rushed.

You will enjoy this, the kids will enjoy this and your just beside the house and lake for refreshments and loads of space to stroll around. Easy with push chairs/strollers in tow and wonderful views.

We were there last weekend during our trip to Kerry. It is a very nice attraction for families with little kids. You will roughly do the tour in about 1 hour. It was nice and instructive but we were just hoping to see more animals.
