The museum presents a good view of life on the Islands. Be sure to watch the informative short video. Food in the cafe was not as good as many museums offer (but there's not much to choose from out here).

This is one of the best museums and information centre we’ve ever been to. A beautiful building, wonderful interactive rooms and helpful staff. Some places on Dingle don’t live up to expectations, but this surpasses them. Outstanding in every way.

A great designed and informative museum. Sensitively done and lovely information about the islands and the people that inhabited the Great Blasket Island. We spent all afternoon and could have gone back again. Well worth a visit with very friendly staff.

The Blasket Islands are fascinating. I wish the weather would have allowed us to take the ferry out to visit them. The visitor's center though is definitely worth a stop. There is so much to learn and see. I even purchased a couple of books...More
