A nice little setting to get an understanding of a historic, small bog community. You could smell the aroma of burning bog fuel that added to the experience. A little pricey, but a good stop. Nice little gift shop.

I would really rate this at 3.5 stars, if that were available. It's worth visiting if you're in the area, and the entrance price isn't all that much. I loved seeing the huge Irish wolfhounds and the bog ponies. There was a nicely painted gypsy...More

It was very interesting walking around from house to house seeing how they lived in those days. Some of the houses had soundtracks and models of people. They also had two lovely Irish wolfhounds in a fenced area both were very friendly.

Enjoyable if you haven’t seen a historical village on your trip but very similar to a few others we have seen on our trip. So a bit of déjà vu for us.
