Located on the Road between Tralee and Listowel this was a wonderful stop where you could have a lovely dinner of Bacon and Cabbage in the tatched cottage before seeing a demonstration of turf cutting etc. Unfortunately funds ran out and it is now becoming increasingly delapadated and is for sale.

For those looking for places to visit this has been closed for some time. It was a nice visit when opened but looks very bad now with the thatch becoming overgrown with weeds. A sad view on road from Listowel to Tralee. Do not mix this with a bog village in Glenbeigh in South Kerry

This beautiful thatch (near Kilflynn) has been badly neglected as it closed a few years ago. It was the hub of a community and my kids used to love visiting the animals here. It breaks my heart to see the state it is in now. I note from some of the comments that tourists are confusing this Day in the... More

The Day in the Bog is not open at present. Not sure when it closed but it has been well over a year already, maybe longer. We used to eat there occasionally. The food was good pub grub fare with a daily roast dinner option. The museum and animals outside were lovely. Months before it closed, we noticed an obvious... More

I liked the experience of being close up and personal, in the varied homes of the simple folk of Irish history. I wish we'd had more time,..but, we were 'on tour', as a large group; impressions are 'snatched'; there is a programme/itinerary,...besides it was a rainy day, and the temptation to hurry into The Red Fox for that Irish Coffee,...

I couldn't believe that anyone would call an attraction this and we stopped for a late breakfast. It was brilliant...an enormous spread with eggs, bacon etc and chips...before 11am!...lots of lovely tea and toast! Was full as an egg at the end. Didn't see the exhibition but there were caley nights. It would be nice to see other peoples reviews... More
