The Drough Famine Village is an absolute must when visiting this part of Donegal. The tour guide was so informative and very funny and gave us so much information on Irish history and traditions and made the whole tour a memorable experience. The entrance charge included a cup of tea, which at €8 was well underpriced. Pretty little Cafe with... More

He was warm and welcoming and made it all very interesting to us. We also got a cup of tea and coffee included in the price which was lovely. We had a short chat... More

I visited for the very first time on Sunday. Joe the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was even better that he was giving a first hand account of everything in the area. I truly felt as if I stepped back in time in Ireland. In all of my trips to Ireland, I feel I learned the most about Irish... More

Highly recommend taking one of the tours, for only 8 euri, our guide was very informative, and had a vast knowledge of Ireland and its relationship with the world through the years.

Our tour guide was brilliant - really interesting. The museum was a bit random but loved it - don't want to give spoilers but didn't expect to find a haunted house, republican safe house and orange hall! Loved it.

I brought a school group. The experience surpassed any expectations I had. The guide was a natural story teller. He had the whole group wrapt in silence as he spoke. He made a sincere effort to be fair in his telling of history. The setting is spectacular. The view of the sand dunes from the dining area I'd say is... More
