CONNEMARA HERITAGE & HISTORY CENTRE

0
Rated 0 out of 5

The Connemara Heritage and History Centre is an open-air museum which is based around the restored pre-famine cottage of Dan O’ Hara. Dan lived here until his eviction from the farm and subsequent emigration to New York, where he ended up selling matches on the street.

Today, with the cottage restored, the centre gives a window into the old traditional ways of Ireland, with demonstrations of bog cutting, thatching, sheep shearing and more. Other attractions include audiovisual and history presentations, as well as outdoor exhibits including reconstructions of a crannóg, a ring fort, and a clochaun. Interestingly, the centre also served as the first pit-stop in TV Series, ‘The Amazing Race 12’.
