This place is AMAZING, we loved the guide called "little deer". It's like a time machine hidden in the lush Irish hillside, absolutely worth the visit. We will go back!

We don't remember and I just looked at the brochure but it was not much and worth it! It's Ireland's history but told with the artifacts of the Irish people.
