Stopped here and was most interested in the cottage layout. A great insight into the lives of our forefathers. The video of the peat cutting was extremely good and insightful. Recommend.

I absolutely loved this seeing cottages occupied by a turf cutter, a thatcher and a labourer plus a stable dwelling and a forge excellent. Also a chance to see bog ponies and Irish wolfhound dogs.

Visited during our trip around the Ring of Kerry. Beware this is on the regular coach stops for the Ring so be prepared for large numbers of visitors. The village shows life in the old days and worth quick visit

We visited the Bog Village as part of the Ring of Kerry bus tour. I found it absolutely fascinating! You can see and kind of experience how people lived during the Famine. As if you stepped back in time - you enter a small house...More
