This little attraction is a regular coach stop where passengers can take a rest, enjoy an Irish coffee or a pint, and take a stroll in this Kerry Bog Village Museum. The museum is small, a sort of living museum with six or seven historic houses, barns, a smithy, and a little gift shop. This place takes all of about... More

We two came expecting more. The museum exhibits are mostly well-maintained, but for the price you pay, they could at least provide a guide, not just a brochure. I felt very sorry for the two bedraggled and sad-looking Irish wolfhounds, clearly completely out of their element in a zoo-style compound. We arrived after midday, so were lucky to miss the...

Interesting and educational at the same time. A couple of historical houses and recreations. They explain a lot of the things you see throughout the countryside. Well done!

It was both very interesting and educational. The Ireish hard a very hard and short life. If you want to see how they lived their homes you you need to stop here for about 1 1/2 hrs.

The village is several recreated Irish houses from the 18th-19th century showing what it was like to live during those times complete with furnishings, etc. A little touristy but interesting and informative. There were even two Irish Wolfhounds on the premises and a little shop.

I stopped at Kerry Bog Village as part of a coach tour and enjoyed a walk through the village. It was interesting to see the peat bog cut up and standing beside the houses. The Owner got on the coach and explained we could get a discount on an Irish coffee at the gift shop. As I walked in I... More

If you are driving past maybe stop and have a look Not sure if it's worth the 5 euros and it wasn't well kept They knew we (a tour group) were coming, but didn't get the ponies or dogs in So basically we saw a few closed buildings and some farm equipment

This is a nice stop when driving The Ring of Kerry. We had well timed bathroom stop and choice of Irish Coffee or Bailey's at 9:30 am. Hit the spot on a sunny, cool day. The restaurant is The Red Fox Pub & Restaurant. It is not in Trip Advisor. Not much to the museum but the place is in... More

Travelling on the Ring of Kerry, between Killorglin and Glenbeigh, we happened across the Kerry Bog Village. It was created by saving historic houses from all over Kerry and bringing them together to recreate a typical 19th century Irish village. Each house has a story and each is set up as a working home with peat fires burning and fully... More

We'll it is covered from outside so you can't see the inside. It has a cluster of replicas of at least 5 abodes of Irish farmers at the time of the Great Famine. Guess whats the biggest building in the open door museum? A gift shop. There are no actors dressed for that time period. No food served similar to... More
