Connemara Heritage &

History Centre

 

Featuring Dan O'Hara's Cottage

 
Connemara Heritage & History Centre, based on the working farm of Dan, Nora and their family makes a perfect day out. They have carefully developed this wonderful facility where the family share the history, heritage, culture and traditions of Connemara.
 
They also offer the opportunity for you to get up close and meet with cattle, sheep, their friendly donkeys and chickens as well as the world famous Connemara ponies.
 
The centre is based around the restored prefamine cottage of Dan O'Hara who was forced to emigrate like so many others in the 1840's after being evicted from his home. 
 
Other displays include the reconstruciton of a Crannog, Ringfort and Clochaun.
 
Tours offer demonstrations of turf cutting, bread making on an open fire and sheep herding where they perfectly combine education and entertainment.
