This little historical village in Dingle does not look like much from the road, but once you start touring it, it gives one a tremendous but stark appreciation of the great famine in Ireland in the mid-1800s. In addition as one walks up the hill where the village is spread out, you are afforded pretty views of the water and Irish countryside.
A number of the buildings are the originals which have been uncovered and brought back to their original state. The way in which people had to live, the way they starved, how they were cheated out of their land -- how they were sent to America -- all of this comes to life as you read the historical descriptions in each building.
In addition there is a pen with some ponies, one of which is very curious about visitors and will follow you about, which was quite charming.
This village is right off the Ring of Dingle road -- don't pass it by, it is well worth taking an hour or more to explore it and learn about a tough part of Irish history and what their people endured. it will give you good insight on the Irish people.
