A great indoor activity for a rainy day. The well preserved cottages gave a fascinating insight into old rural life in Ireland. The videos that played on the projectors were particularly informative. We then stopped off at the cafe for some homemade soup and sandwiches followed by Irish coffee and apple pie. The cafe was very affordable and the portions filling. Great day out overall.

Lovely way to spend an hour, pottering around in this little folk village. Very well done and nice atmosphere. There's also a tearoom in which to enjoy a coffee and cake in.

This is well worth a visit, it’s very far off the beaten track with a lovely beach down a slope. Good value for money (€16.50 for a family of four), very friendly staff. The tours are self-guided at the minute, we spent a good hour looking around. There is a nice little tea shop for when you’re finished your tour.

Arrived on Bank holiday Monday morning and delighted to find it was quiet and we were the only ones there for a long time. The lad at the gate friendly and welcoming but after that the welcome sort of goes downhill and with a lot of what we saw in Donegal this weekend we wondered if locals want tourists at all. The ticket area was grand, we couldn't get the QR code to work so the lad offered us a booklet and it was a self guided trip with everyone in the village (staff) wearing masks which was great. Throughout the village tour there are references to all of the artifacts on show but most of the labels were faded and illegible and it's a pity with the country closed for half a year that management couldn't use the time to relabel everything so that tourists (paying visitors) can experience it properly . The cafe had a big sign asking people to wait to be served from the hatch, but the hatch was unmanned so we had to continuously tell people to go in - again just lax attitude. The food offering okay in hindsight we shouldn't have wasted money on apple pie and tea brack but we were keen to support everywhere we went.
