BRINGING YOUR VISIT TO LIFE!

A guided tour around Doagh Famine Village with one of our experienced and knowledgeable guides brings the whole experience to life.

Enjoy the craic, ask questions and learn what lies behind all the attractions and exhibits you will see during your visit.

Our tour guides will take you on a journey showing how communities have lived on the edge generation after generation, adapting  and surviving as the environment and society around them changes.

A combination of informative story telling and life size exhibits provides an informative, thought-provoking and at time humorous look at Irish life.

Guided tours last approximately 45 minutes and cost €8 per adult or €4 per child u12 with under 4s free.
