This was a great place to give you insight into the lives of Irish poor before and during the famine. The video is an excellent place to start and then a walk up to the homestead is well worth the trouble. Really well done and the house puppy accompanied us all the way.

Visited here with a tour. They provided a farmhouse luncheon and then a tractor ride to the top of the hill where they showed how they dig and dry pest. You then get to see an old homestead of a local farmer Dan o'Hara where he lived and worked with his wife and 7 children. Beautiful views, but bitterly cold... More

Our group of five people enjoyed Dan O'Haras educational center and tour of the house and grounds. It has a lot to offer. I wish the antique bottles, tools, and household items were labelled wth identification text and dates. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. It wasn't really equipped for use of a mobility scooter to see the O'Hara... More

Wonderful stop to see cutting peat and learning about some history of Ireland. Had a chance to try potion. I believe it is Irish moonshine.

Visited here with two grandchildren. It was fascinating to see the turf being cut and visit the cottage of Dan O'Hara. The story was very well told by the guide together with a bar of the famous song. A video show in the centre with soup and sandwiches made it a memorable visit.

We traveled up the mountain in a trolley-type wagon pulled by a tractor. The driver of the tractor was also our guide. Very fun and interesting. He showed us how they dig and dry the peat to be used for heating their home. There were several buildings, including a small hut with a fireplace--neat to smell the peat burning. The... More

This provides an excellent stopping off point on the amazing drive across Connemara and the 20 minute introductory video gives a good overview to the area and also the specific history of the farm. It is a good but sad story! In a relaxed setting there is plenty to see and do - rest and have a cup of tea... More

We visited this site for 2 hours with a Homeschooling tour group and had a wonderful educational experience. Had a coffee, saw the movie, then we took a tractor ride up the mountain and saw wonderful views and then learned about the life of the family who lived and farmed here before they were evicted. They had a lovely gift... More

When I visited this farm, it was with a CIE Tour so we got the full treatment. Lunch was wonderful, real Irish food. The tour was fun (a ride in a tram pulled by a huge tractor) and Martin was typically Irish with a good wit and some great stories told in the old homestead. Since my daughter is a... More
