Isle of Doagh Famine Village
Perhaps the most popular attraction on nearby Doagh Island has to be the Famine Village. This is a family run outdoor museum, with displays and models depicting buildings and tableaux of life in Ireland during the great famine of the 1840's and onward. When visiting, you must go on the guided tour for a most fascinating account of the local history, traditions and customs. Refreshments are served afterwards. In the summer months, the centre has live music and dance performed by local artists, and in December, the centre transforms into Santa's Lapland; magic, for young and old alike!
A popular local activity, (to mention just one) is hill walking; - perfect for the area, although the main attraction here has to be the very popular Ballyliffin Golf Club, unique for its 2 links; the old and the new, and a great new state-of-the-art clubhouse.
