Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The display was interesting but there was a little less to see than we were expecting. The Irish Wolfhound and the Bog Ponies were enjoyable to see, except due to the rain, they were staying under their shelter. (I don't blame them!)

The adjacent gift shop was well stocked and fairly priced.

Great Kerry gem - excellent exhibition and fantastic activity. You really get a feeling of being immersed in old Ireland. You can tell some hard times were had along with some good ones. We loved our time at the bog village museum!

We stopped here as part of a tour and visiting the village was optional. We enjoyed pottering around the place and there’s a pretty good gift shop on site too.

Enjoyed our stop at Kerry Bog Village. The different dwellings and Cottages were so interesting, the contrast in class of the living conditions were quite obvious. Good tourist destination, entry fee was reasonable.

This is a cute and kitschy kind of place to visit. Your entry not only gets you in to see examples of life in a village (with piles of peat, friendly chickens, goats, and wolfhounds. Great tourist destination.

I really enjoyed my visit to this place. I parked my camper van in the large parking area at the back and enjoyed a beautiful dinner in the restaurant. I then went into the bog museum which was very nice and enjoyed a pint or two in the bar later on in the evening. They were happy to allow me park overnight so all in all a perfect stop and lovely staff.

This is a cute and kitschy kind of place to visit — the kiddos will love it! Your entry not only gets you in to see examples of life in a village (with piles of peat, friendly chickens, goats, and wolfhounds) but also a discount on an Irish coffee at the pub and gift shop.
Yes it’s touristy but it is not meant to be a world class museum. Restrooms are clean in the pub/gift shop and it is a perfect place to stretch your legs if en route from place to place as we were.

Felt very tourist-trappy and I agree with the reviews that say the tourist buses definitely keep it busy. Unless you are willing to spend more money, there really isn't anything to do or see. We stopped for 45 minutes and I think the stop could have been shorter - 20-30 minutes. The village itself seems like it could use a bit of a revival as it is a bit tired. It has the potential to be better, I think, as it does display a neat representation of an old bog village.

While not the most exciting it gave us a good idea of life in a big - like the differences in dwelling areas. Also enjoyed seeing a wolf hound.
