This is a small "village" that once was a private residence. Some much history here about life in the isolated northern region of Ireland through the occupation of the English up to the modern century. Care is taken to provide a full balance of the political and economic climate of the times to give balance to the story that has... 更多
Ok, so it's not all about the Famine. Ok, so it's not all interactive, touch screen and modern. It's informative and touches on many aspects of life in rural Donegal and gives nod of the head to other Irish cultural issues without dwelling on the politics of the past.

Had a very informative visit to doagh famine village. Very reasonably priced for such a big display. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Booklet was a great addition to the tour. I was able to look over the info when i got home again. Would throughly recommend a visit. Will definitely be back again.
'Village' is a slight misnomer - there are a few restored post-famine houses, one of which was lived in by our guide. The famine part is actually a very interesting museum, consisting of large reconstructions and dioramas. It is Patrick, the guide, who lifts the rating to five stars. He is so informative and engaging. I learned so much.
