Great Irish Coffee

We enjoyed the museum. We were slightly unlucky with our timing as lots of coach tours were in at the same time so it was very busy, but worth it.

We were on a CIE Tour and this was one of the stops made in Kerry. My husband stayed on the bus while I spent the 5 Euros (at that time) to get in. It was empty accept for the few people from my tour bus. No costumed person and no ponies. However, I fell in love with the Irish... More

Great bog village complete with cottages, turf fires, animals and even a statue of a goat crowned a king , not something you see everyday, thoroughly recommend it if only to see the Irish wolfhounds

Not the only and not the first folklore museum in Ireland as there are similar villages one can visit all around Ireland, but the cottages are quite typical for Kerry and interesting if you're into history and/or folklore. I usually stop here with groups for Irish coffees and a toilet stop and the Irish coffees are lovely. The museum has... More

It was interesting to see the village museum how the houses looked in the past in Ireland. Inside the houses is on display fully equipped kitchens, sleeping quarters and tool sheds.

Unfortunately, there is nothing here that cannot be seen in other museums round the country! I found the whole experience a tad too synthetic for my liking and taking into consideration that these 4 structures have been recently constructed and made to look old, I really think this is a rip off and nowhere near worthy of the somewhat inflated...

We visited the Kerry Bog Village Museum last week, out of season. We had to enter the pub to get tickets which cost 6€ per person. There was no-one in the museum, just the four houses and two sad looking ponies. What it is like in summer I don't know, but a different price should be considered for the low... More

We enjoyed the charming village, but we must have toured prior to tourist season as there was no one in traditional costume attending. The facility has a wonderful restaurant and excellent gift shop with many items to select from. But, the best part of the experience was warming up with the absolute BEST Irish Coffee in the WORLD!!!

I have stopped here and found the museum very interesting. The people here were fabulous and went over and beyond making me feel welcome. You can take as long as you like and if its not your bag the Red Fox could and does have the finest hospitality in Kerry.

This pleasant little village provides an interesting look into the past. Easy and quick to go through ( we were on a bus tour) while learning about Irish heritage. Enjoyed our visit!
