Thought this was THE Connemara History Center, but it is rather a private enterprise with reconstructed buildings. Note.. we really don't know how people lived 4000 years ago - but I guess they made an educated guess. Price of admission, a staggering 8 Euro, includes...More

We had a great visit to the history center today. We enjoyed a nice lunch followed by a wonderful tour of Dan O’Sheas house and a turf demonstration. It was quite fascinating.

This is a unique experience for sure! There’s lunch if you are hungry and a lovely gift shop. The highlight though is when a tractor pulls you up a mountain in a trolley car! Martin, the owner and lover of history, shares the history of...More

Nice stop off to kill and hour or two. Staff were all friendly and we enjoyed looking around and walking to the cottage. Did not see many animals or have a tractor ride however. Worth a visit as it is not overly expensive

We stopped here for tea and were charmed by the tour. Pulled by a huge tractor and comfy in an enclosed wagon, we made our way to the top with stories and singing by our guide, the local farmer. The cottage of Dan O'Hara and...More

The enthusiasm and kindness of the staff made a very pleasant visit. Unfortunately it was quite a climb up to Dan O`Haras Cottage so we missed a closeup. Apart from a short film there was not a lot to see and it was an expensive...More
