This centre tells you all about Irish history and has lots and lots of reconstructions of primitive dwellings, boats and even a small castle. It's rather like a smaller version of the Welsh equivalent in St. Fagans, Cardiff. It is built alongside a lake and small hillside so be prepared for some uphill walking. Some structures are still being built and it was fantastic to watch thatching being done. Once you've tired yourself out, have a fabulous light lunch in the visitor centre. The sea-food chowder is full of large pieces of salmon. Others were having traditional Irish stew which looked as if one could survive a week on it.
