Very interesting sight on the drive around Dingle Peninsula. A highlight was the sheepdog training going on. Very entertaining watching the two dogs being trained with the sheep. Definitely worth a stop.

The cottages along with the information inside, painted a very accurate and vivid picture of the suffering that occurred during the Great Starvation.

This is a great little stop on the side of the road, that allows you to stretch your legs, enjoy some animals, see the sights and learn a little history. You park at the bottom of the hill and pay the man a small fee,...More

We stopped here so we could see the view of Dun Beag ring fort across the road (closed because it is eroding into the sea and dangerous). But stayed because we could walk up onto the hill and see old walls and beehive huts. The...More

This cottage involved quite the steep climb, but it was worth it. The animals in the yard seemed quite dissapointed with me because I didn't realize they sold animal food at the bottom of the hill. The model famine victims were disturbing, but the information...More

You'll pay a few euros to hike uphill for a few minutes to explore the now deserted famine cottage. Picturesque location overlooking sheep fields and the sea. Thought provoking look at life in an earlier and harsher time in Irish history. Behind the cottage is...More

We enjoyed stopping here and spending 30 minutes. This is along the Dingle loop and it's easy to pull off and walk up.
