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

Just displays of what life was like in the old days. Cost 5 euros each, literally took us less than 10 minutes. The Irish whiskey in the bar was good. Don't bother with this.

Fascinating and eye-opening historic village provides the opportunity to explore how people lived in Ireland 150-200 years ago. Includes gift shop. You can conclude your tour with an Irish Coffee at the Red Fox Inn just across the parking lot.

We had had this place recommended as an overnight camping spot. We were warmly welcomed and given a nice flat spot out the back. We then did the tour of the museum which is great followed by a meal and a drink in the pub.
