Ranked #2 of 6 things to do in Killybegs
Attraction details
Reviewed September 3, 2011

Excellent place to visit; you start by watching a dvd of Donegal Carpets, and we were lukcy enough to be able to watch a second video on the history of fishing industry in Killybegs. We were lucky enough to go on a quiet day and thus had a tour of the carpet factory by ourselves. It was great to try out the knots on an actual carpet as well! The only disappointment was when we visited they were still getting the maritime part set up or re-done up, there was only the fishing boat simulator game and a few wall hangings of knots, but the lady did say they were waiting on new exhibits for this part. Overall a great way to pass a few hours and very reasonably priced!

We were visiting Killybegs on our trip to the Slieve Leagues in Donegal,we decided to stop in The maritime & heritage centre for a cup of tea,the staff was so helpfull and welcoming that we decided to stay and do a tour.We started by watching a dvd of how the carpets were made and were then taken on a guided tour into part of the old factory.It was very interesting and fun epecially when i tried a knot or 2 myself.The kids had a great time playing on the shipsimulator.Will recommend it to everyone who is visiting Killybegs.
