I have been to many heritage museums throughout Ireland and Scotland and there is a similarity that encompasses them all. People lived in close harmony with their surroundings and made the most of everything they had. They lived a rich life and formed close associations...More

Our tour guide took us here and it was amazing....We loved looking at all dwellings and see how many lived centuries ago. We had coffee in the little refresment area and all the people were just great as you walked around. Don't miss this!!!!!!!!!!

We were there in November and we were amazed at how empty it was. I assume this place is hopping during the summer since the parking lot was massive and built for buses. The only part that we really enjoyed were the Irish wolf hounds...More

We stopped to explore this heritage village as we kicked off our journey on the Ring of Kerry. The Heritage Village provided a tangible experience on daily living. The Irish Wolfhounds were a plus.

Kerry Bog Village which gave us an insight into how people lived and worked in Ireland in the late 18th Century. The Village is located on the main Ring of Kerry Route. A stroll through Bog Village Museum showed how peat was cultivated for fuel,...More

Brilliant place to visit. The bar and shop staff are so friendly and the good is wonderful. The bog museum is a real treat. It was so lovely to see the kerry bog ponies. Great to see an old bread being saved! Well done.

Called in for a look but was very disappointed. The price to see some old houses, sheds and animals was over the fence so gave it a miss. The place was overcrowded with buses and tourists, most of who were in the Red Fox Pub...More

Ring of Kerry half way? (9 Replies)
We're staying in Kenmare and plan to drive (and stop along) the Ring of Kerry tomorrow or Wednesday. The owner of the B&B suggested that we only drive as far as Valentia Island and then turn around and come back the way we came. We'd miss the Cahergal & Leacanabuaile Ring Forts and the Kerry Bog Village Museum as well as the drive from Valentia to Killarney. We'd see the Kenmare to Killarney section the day we don't visit the RoK. Thoughts? Many thanks!

To be honest, I think thats a ridiculous suggestion. By the time you get to Valentia, you're over half way there. Do the full ring in one go. The days are still fairly long at the moment so there's no rush to be back by 5pm or so. Allow yourself see Muckross House and Gardens, Torc Waterfall and Muckross Abbey on your second day.
