We visited this on a tour. Thatched roof cottages that let you feel how the Irish lived. They have a restaurant there and we had some amazing homemade soup and of course fabulous Irish brown bread.

Its totally worth the trip! It's very well done and beautiful. The gift shop has great items, many locally made, not touristy junk. If you like history you will enjoy this village.

We had known a little about Father McDyre and this filled in the gaps. A well stocked folk village that should interest everyone.
