Our B&B hostess recommended this to us- and I am really pleased that she did. While the majority of tourists were quite a bit older than my family, I was thrilled that the guide included my girls in the discussions and answered their questions.
This is a great place to learn about the history of Western Ireland- from the Iron & Bronze Ages through the famine, you'll find recreations of dwellings and even artifacts.
Most come to hear the story of Dan O'Hara and to visit the small farmhouse where he and his family lived before being evicted during the famine. It's a sad tale, and one that is told in song (the Ballad of Dan O'Hara).
Even if your kids don't enjoy the history lesson, they will be intrigued by the hand-cut turf (peat), the farmyard chickens, Connemara ponies and Spot, the farm dog.
